Community Driven

Our vision of ministry is that of a caring community of faith, welcoming to all, ministering to each other, our local community, and the world – all part of our rich church history.

Our church history is rooted in ministering to each other through our very active deacon ministries, prayer chains, and personal devotion, and by worshiping our Lord together.  We serve our community with a twice-monthly food pantry including soup lunch, and a community supper served at our church every Sunday evening.  This meal has support of twenty other faith groups in our area who rotate meal planning, purchase, and preparation. For more than 40 years we have hosted a Thanksgiving meal for the community serving close to 500.

Our church is involved with the Naomi Project that attempts to find solutions to chronic social issues.

We ring bells for Salvation Army, buy blankets for the Presbyterian project, support Heifer International, and purchase supplies and warm clothing for a neighborhood school.

A new venture last summer was a vegetable garden on our church property to supply our food pantry with fresh tomatoes, beans, and other fresh produce.

A recent congregational survey indicated that the unifying thread of our church life is mission work – reaching out not only to our congregation members in times of need, but also to the community as a whole.
