Our desire to serve people is rooted firmly in Jesus’ instruction to join Him in His mission. This means we actively and prayerfully seek out opportunities to serve our neighbors with the same love that Christ has shown us. Sometimes this happens on the other side of the world through our global mission trips. However, this also happens right next door with our Meals of Encouragement ministry. Regardless of the location, by serving with our many mission partners, we seek to take part in Jesus’ mission rooted in His love for His people.
Below are opportunities to serve in our neighborhood, in our city, or even the world, please contact Pastor Joe Behnke firstname.lastname@example.org
