We exist to help people find and follow Jesus, and in Mark 10:45, Jesus says, "...even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...", and we take this to heart in many ways--by partnering with local organizations in serving people in need in our community, by supporting missionaries in their work domestically and globally, by sending teams to serve "the least of these" in impoverished parts of the world, and by serving one another and meeting needs within our church family.


If you are ready to reach out and serve with us locally, many opportunities are available to you:

    • formalwear for night to shine

      Night to Shine 2022 will once again be an outdoor event (and has moved to March 25), but we're still collecting formalwear for some of next year's guests. So, if you have any formalwear, cleaned and in good condition--formal/fancy dresses, tuxedos, cummerbunds, and bowties--bring it to the church and hang it in the coat closet in the main lobby! Thanks for helping making Night to Shine 2022 unforgettable!
