Volunteer to be the Hands and Feet of Christ in the World.
One of the keystones of Christian life is sharing our gifts and our talents. Jesus asked us to care for the sick, feed the hungry and clothe the needy. We’ve been asked to help our brothers and sisters in Christ and reach out to those that may not know Him yet. This page details the many outreach missions, both local and international, that we support as a church.
Local Outreach Missions

Crossroads is a place for men, women, and children to go to when they are in a crisis. Crossroads introduces them to the Lord and helps them stand on a firm foundation. They provide food, shelter, clothing, and a family of support for those in need. Through their four-phase program, those in need learn how to be personally resilient, hold a steady job, manage finances, and become leaders. They bring glory to God by helping others.

The East Lawn Food Pantry provides food for 60-70 families daily and has served thousands since its opening in 2011. It is located at East Lawn Mobile Home Estates 2800 Grand Ave. #342.
