We have the pleasure of partnering with many local and national organizations in our desire to be the hands and feet of Christ to our community.
The purpose of our ‘one-time’ outreach events is to expose our church family to these particular ministries, knowing once there and serving, God will lead them to greater depths of prayer and partnership. Our outreach events are great opportunities to see these organizations in action, as well as to connect further and serve alongside our family.
Below are some opportunities to serve during this spring season. To get further involved with any organization through prayer, serving and giving, please email Amen Bains at email@example.com
