Connecting people with God, each other, and their mission in the world.
Outreach is love in action! We continue to grow in global and local consciousness of both God’s passion for justice and our ability and responsibility to participate in the unfolding of God’s kingdom in love. We resonate to the mission statement “Growing in faith, living to serve.” We understand ourselves as partners in God’s ministry; seeking to walk alongside those we serve, and valuing the ways others teach and minister to us as well!
