Be the Church Sunday THANK YOU

Thank you to all who participated in Be the Church Sunday on April 30, 2017! Whether it was breakfast preparation and cleanup, building hygiene kits for Isaiah's Table, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for Samaritan Center, doing yard work for House at 807 or Vanderkamp or Betty's house, sorting used items at ThriftyShopper, or writing advocacy letters, you were the hands and feet and voice of Jesus!

We respond by supporting and participating in these mission ministries.  

We are open to discern new opportunities as we grow in discipleship.
