SEASON OF GENEROSITY

Each year, we love coming alongside ministries to support them and spread the love of Christ throughout our community and the world. This year, we are putting an emphasis on the physical and spiritual hunger crises both locally and globally. There are many opportunities for you to get involved through serving, as well as several meaningful opportunities to meet financial needs. We're excited to see what God will do as we dig into The Hunger Project! Scroll down to learn more about the ministries we've chosen to engage with this year, and prayerfully consider joining us in embracing this season bountiful giving.
