Missions

As disciples of Christ with a mission of helping more people live life with Jesus every day, we are compelled to love and serve others both locally and globally. From multiple international trips each year to partnerships with local ministries, we are always striving to fulfill the Great Commission. Check out all of our mission opportunities and see where the Holy Spirit guides you. Contact Stephanie Knea to get involved or if you have any questions.

kids hope

Become a mentor in one of our local elementary schools. Kids Hope USA helps churches develop one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk children in supportive mentoring relationships. Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour a week— reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed. For more information, please email Jean Peltier.
