Here to serve

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,

but to serve, and to give his life...” (Mark 10:45).


We love serving people. We serve because Jesus served, it's in our DNA as His church. We are here to serve.


Below are ways we are seeking to partner with Jesus and serve our communities.
