Sharing the love of Jesus must begin in our own backyard, neighborhood and city. As we live and love like Jesus, we have opportunities to share the hope of Jesus with those around us. Through our missional and community partnerships with many local ministries, we can share God’s love in very tangible ways. Visit this website regularly for information about opportunities to serve.
Life Group classes, ministry group(s) and individual church members can participate in local mission serve opportunities by reaching out to the Missional Life Office or by contacting many of the partners directly.
