Local Outreach Initiatives

Outreach is one of our greatest calls as Christians. We are invited, by Jesus, to be his hands and feet–his love on display–to the communities around us. Sometimes outreach looks like loving one's family, sometimes it looks like showing kindness to a stranger, a lot of times it looks like walking alongside a friend, coworker, or mentee. Regardless of what outreach looks like, it is an invitation to partner with Christ in the work he wants to do in you and me and those in the community.
We are all invited to live the Isaiah 58 call to take care of those in need, fight for justice, and love compassionately. We all bring different gifts, talents, abilities and life experiences, all of which are needed in reaching out to those in need and in our communities. Would you accept the invitation and join us?
