The life of following Jesus is an active life. We’ve been invited to put our faith in action. As a church, we’re always trying to find ways to live this active faith. Here are just a few ways for you to get involved. This is just a starting point!

  • Praying for those who are sick and hurting & writing cards to them.
  • Become a part of the Ministry of Encouragement.
  • Give old eye classes, ink cartridges, greeting cards, “Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels for Education, for various ministries.
  • Take food or provide other assistance to the sick and those who are grieving.
