People matter to us and we know that often it’s the most vulnerable in our community whose needs multiply severely in times of emergency. As a church we want to be ready to love and serve our community, stepping up to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our city in their time of need. We are currently in need of teams to serve both locally and down at the coast, offering aid to those who were affected by the storm. If you are interested in being a part of these teams in any way, please contact Scott Mason to let him know your availability.
Additionally we have captured some ways below you can help some of our strategic ministry partners as they continue to assist those in need.
