We're all about practical Christianity, being the hands, feet & voice of Jesus. We use our skills and talents to serve one another in advancing the work of God in our church and community. Our active and vibrant ministry groups reinforce our mission to reach upward to God, inward to support each other, and outward to our community. What we sow will return in abundance as we plant seeds of loving service and generosity. The wise writer of Proverbs said it this way: "Whoever refreshes others will himself be refreshed" (Proverbs 11:25).
