LIVE IT...out there

IF YOUR CHURCH CLOSED ITS DOORS TOMORROW, WOULD YOUR COMMUNITY EVEN NOTICE?

We are committed to being the hands and feet of Christ in our community all year long. Whether it is with our families, our small groups, or together as the body of Christ, our Outreach Team is constantly working to provide opportunities for our congregation to be OUT loving people like Jesus.

Each month our Outreach Team puts together THREE different types of opportunities to serve. Check our website each month to see what the new serve opportunities are!

sincerity of love

7 But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving.

8 I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

2 Corinthians 8:7-9

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

The Bible tells us that faith without works is dead. We choose to play our role in God's story so that we can help usher God's kingdom onto earth as it is in Heaven. To be Christian is to be apart of the body of Christ, using our unique gifts and passions to help others come to know God and experience the transforming work of the Spirit.
