It used to be that people outside of the U.S. experienced issues that were quite different from those in a local, American community. Now, we see a growing need to respond to problems like poverty and other social concerns in our own backyard. Refugees from the least reached parts of the world arrive in our communities on a consistent basis, and children and young people need godly mentors more than ever.
Through the eyes of the Gospel, this is an incredible opportunity. As a church, we want to embrace our local community and be ambassadors of Christ, sharing his love to our neighbors. We partner with local experts to help meet felt needs in our community.
