Serving In The Community

You don’t have to go far out the door to find people who need to feel hope and find God! We encourage individuals, families, small groups and ABFs to find ways to serve and impact our communities. Some of our organized serving opportunities include:

helping-hands-sliderHelping Hands
Throughout the week teams of two or more volunteers seek to be the hands and feet of our Lord in meeting the urgent physical needs of those in our church and community who are unable to do for themselves.  This may include widows, senior citizens, divorced, disabled, etc… people who have household needs that they are unable to take care of on their own.  Our teams of volunteers seek to lovingly provide the help those of our church family and community need in order to live normal lives.  If you have “handyman” skills or are able to do yard work, or simply want to be a helper in these areas, this may be an opportunity for you to serve others, form friendships, and follow God’s path for your life at the same time. Life Groups, Adult Bible Fellowship Groups, and Student groups are encouraged to participate.
