In His service. For His glory...

Below is a list of some organizations and service projects that our church members are currently engaged in. Along with some contact information to help you find a "point person" for each outreach.

We share these things not to bring glory to ourselves, but only to provide helpful information to those seeking to contribute or become invloved. It is only through God's power that any good can be accomplished and all glory goes to Him.
