Serve in the Community

God's hands and feet...that's us. That's you!

Here are a few ways we can work together to make a difference in our community showing God's love to hurting people in our own backyard. 

Serving in your own backyard!

Oil Change Volunteers

Twice each year we offer free oil changes to single moms and low-income families. Don’t know anything about cars? No problem! Consider helping greet our guests, serving meals to our volunteers, or organizing supplies. CLICK HERE TO SERVE

Adopt-a-School

Teams of helpers “adopt” a local school and serve the faculty, perhaps by cleaning the teacher’s lounge once a month, appreciating teachers with meals during conferences, or surprising the staff with treats from time to time. CLICK HERE TO SERVE
