Outreach

Serve our city


In the face of the unknown and the fear of what could be, we get to be the Church. We get to be the tangible expression of the body of Christ as the hands, feet, eyes, ears, and arms of Jesus. You are a vital member of the body of Christ. In such uncertain times as these, your participation is crucial for the health and well-being of our city.

Lean in. Right now. Let's be the Church at Work.

DONATE BLOOD | American Red Cross

The American Red Cross now faces a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations. Further, the largest donor population consists of senior citizens who are now strictly advised to stay home. While elective surgeries have been postponed due to these shortages, high-risk patients receiving cancer treatments and trauma-related emergency surgeries are in even greater need of help at this time.
