Missions

local community

Our church is involved in the following ministries and outreaches to the community, providing people and financial resources.

Angel Tree (click here for more information)

Prison Fellowship's Angel Tree program supplies Christmas gifts to children who have a parent (or parents) incarcerated at a State or Federal prison. Our church has added a twist, choosing to "sponsor" our Angel Tree children on their birthdays and at Easter, making Camp Spalding experiences available to those who qualify by age, and providing back to school necessities, from new shoes to pencils and erasers.

The Angel Tree adorned with gift selections will be in Fellowship Hall on November 27 and December 4. Stop by and select an angel and then shop for your gifts.
