God has a calling for all of us! There is more to God’s ministry than simply coming to worship. When we serve, we build relationships and become the hands and feet of God.
Human Care Ministry engages our congregation to put their faith into action by providing opportunities to help those less fortunate in our local and global communities. There is no limit on the number of people who can be involved. Read more below for specific ways you can be involved!
2016/2017 Human Care Ministry Calendar
