Helping others is at the core of who we are. 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!
Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. – 1 Timothy 6:18
We want to be an exceedingly generous church giving BIG to help people in need locally, regionally, and globally. Check out Reclaim3d, which exists to reclaim bad circumstances into something beautiful locally, regionally, and globally.
