How Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in this community and spreads. Church members and guests are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as cleaning up the church grounds to greater commitments like leading classes or serving as officers in the church.
