We want to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community, our country and the world. A big part of our work is enabling members of our church and community to serve. We do this by promoting participation in and financial support for projects that do “good works”. In some cases, we organize such projects.
We take inspiration from the words of Jesus:
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
We want to celebrate ways in which our church reaches out and serves others in Christ’s name.
