We are a congregation that takes our call to serve others very seriously. Our Outreach is tremendous, and is a part of each of the ministries of our church. It is in our DNA. It is just how we are church. Below you will find a list with a brief description of just some of the opportunities. Find a place to use your gifts with us and the community!

Women's Derby Party
Day after Derby, after church
All women of the church and their women friends and family are invited to an afternoon of food, fellowship, and door prizes! Put on your fancy hats (if you wish) and join us! The woman who brings the most canned food for Operation Food Basket wins a special prize.
Ice Cream Supper

The church choir hosts a huge (and delicious) ice cream supper fundraiser. Don't let the title fool you, there are all kinds of treats to satisfy your sweet tooth. It is a great opportunity to not only support the music ministry of the church but get together with friends and neighbors.
Trunk or Treat
Last Sunday in October, 6:00 p.m.
A fun event for the entire community! All ghosts and goblins are invited to the church parking lot (or Education Building if the weather doesn't cooperate). Have fun visiting the decorated vehicles and collecting all the treats!
