Our local mission partners provide us with unique opportunities to serve our community and region. By engaging in local missions, you not only impact the lives of the people you serve, but you find yourself being impacted in ways you didn’t think were possible.
Whether it’s Build the Walls, Operation Christmas Child or Little Angels, we have multiple chances for our church get involved in local missions throughout the year.
We hope that you will pray with us for our mission partners and pray about how you can get engaged in missions and help us carry out the redemptive work Jesus has commanded us to do.
Respite Nights provide an opportunity for parents of children/teens with special needs to have a night out, while their children are being cared for in a loving, safe environment (and having lots of fun)!

Time: 6:30-9:00 pm (Volunteers arrive at 5:30 with dinner provided)
Volunteers must be at least 16 to have an independent assignment. Anyone younger will be assessed on an individual basis.
“Change For Life” is an opportunity to serve and love on women and teens who are facing unplanned pregnancy. We partner with Life Forward to make this happen every spring. It is the mission of Life Forward to help women and their families make life-affirming decisions through God’s love. They strive to help women feel empowered to choose life. Check out their website here.
