Join Us in Loving and Serving Those in Our Community and Around the World

Mission work is not for just anyone, it is for everyone! You have been specifically, strategically, and purposefully designed to make Jesus visible locally and around the world. Through participating in the world Christian movement, every believer can find a way to live with vital significance in God’s global purpose. Identify and eliminate anything getting in the way of your ability to share your own story of redemption with others. Being a missionary requires finding your own chapter within God’s larger story of love for all people and offering your life to others in a way that brings glory to God.

Our greatest resource as a church is not our finances, building, or programs. Our greatest resource is a gift from God; it is the love of Jesus Christ within the people of our congregation. Because God desires for all people to know, love, and serve only Him, our church exists to make Jesus visible to our community and throughout the world. We demonstrate this not only in the way we worship, grow and serve in his name, but also in the way we work to transform our city, merge the biblical with the social Gospel, show spontaneous compassion to others, devote ourselves to service, and equip families to bond together in Christ. We are no longer living for ourselves and our own selfish desires. We are Loving Christ, Loving One Another, and Loving the City, in order that He may receive all glory and honor.

Loaves and Fishes is our monthly opportunity to welcome our under-resourced neighbors for lunch where they will be fed physically and spiritually. We meet in the Student Center on the third Saturday of each month. From 8:30 AM – 2:00 PM, we begin with orientation and then participate in Loaves and Fishes. We have teams for set up, serving, showers, and clean up and we hope all participants will join our guests for a meal around a table. We build relationships through conversation and prayer.
