Missions are at the core of who we are as a church. In fact, it’s so important that it’s part of our church mission – to be a catalyst for Life Change, Life Growth, and Life Purpose! Life Purpose is all about doing what God created us to do, which is to serve others!
We want to be an exceedingly generous church giving BIG to help people in need locally, regionally, and globally. In 2016, our church started Reclaimed, a 501c3, that we will use to raise more money for missions.
You can also shop through AmazonSmile and 1/2 of 1% of your purchase will go to Reclaimed! This is an easy way for you to help!
Here are the missions we’ve supported in the past or are currently supporting.
Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. – 1 Timothy 6:18
