We offer many opportunities to serve the community in ways that fit with your interests, gifts and schedule. We can connect you to ministries that serve meals, offer hospitality to the homeless, grow food in our community garden, and much more! Several ministries allow families with school-aged children to serve together.

If you have any questions about what ministry is right for you,
please contact Trevor Thompson or Becky Cawley.
