We believe that we are called t transform the world. When we pray, “thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” it’s not just our prayer…it’s our call. We seek to offer opportunities of all ages for service to the whole world. Our financial giving, building use, and sending out of people in resources reflect our commitment to bring hope to the hungry, homeless, hopeless, and anyone needing relief. These are a few of our ministries.
