For our Neighbors

For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall Love your neighbor as yourself.”
– Galatians 5:14

Our hope and vision for our church family is for each of us to be fully engaged pursuing our neighbors that live near us and also to those in need. By meeting their needs, we build relationships that open the door to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We partner with many organizations in our community to provide resources and to help them accomplish their mission.

Community partners

unity table

The Unity Table is an invitation to gather with people across racial lines for honest, real conversations on the 5th Sunday of a month. Unity Table was created to drive people towards Christ and community rather than causes. It challenges us to be intentional about gathering with others who don’t look like us; where questions can be asked, lessons can be learned and perspectives are broadened as we appreciate the special ways that God has created each of us.
