Service & Outreach

Our faith calls us to pay attention and to seek to make this world a more loving and just place for all of us. Throughout the year there are a variety of opportunities to get involved, serve and advocate. The Mission Ministry Team initiates and supports many of the projects, and members also organize around issues that concern them.

  • Serving our church Community

    Many members volunteer at church by serving on a Ministry Team or helping with an activity or event. Some visit the homebound and bereaved, some help lead worship or prepare communion, some work with facilities, some greet or usher or serve coffee for Fellowship, some teach or mentor, some manage finances. Indeed, we are one Body and serve through many gifts.
