Through partnering with ministries around the world, our church impact extends far beyond our local region.
We are a congregation that is growing in our understanding and support of God’s mission both close to home and far away. We participate in the holistic mission of the United Methodist Church’s mission agency.
Support of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), which is part of the General Board of Global Missions is an ongoing part of our mission efforts. UMCOR provides relief supplies, health kits, flood buckets and volunteer personnel to aid in relief efforts worldwide as well as locally and regionally. Ongoing ministries such as “Imagine No Malaria” and earthquake relief in areas such as Nepal are in constant need of support through the “Advance” ministries. We support both evangelistic effort as well as projects focused on poverty alleviation and social justice.
Come grow with us as we participate in God’s mission together!
