Outreach Ministries

We believe that it is our calling to reach out to our community and beyond, to both Christians and non-Christians, in fellowship and service. In doing so, we share in ecumenical endeavors and worship with other churches in our community, offer our services to our local Care Center, offer our church's facilities for health programs, and are involved in helping to provide the needs of surrounding organizations such as Bremwood in Waverly.

Our church financially supports the following ministries:
