Project Serve

Project Serve is an initiative designed to explore the question: “How does God want us to reach out and serve the needs of our community?”

Outreach Mission

From September 2013 through April 2014, we gathered to listen to community organizations share unmet needs and ways we, as a congregation, might be able to get involved. We listened and afterwards we had an opportunity to prayerfully discern where the Spirit of God might be calling us to reach out and serve the needs of our community.

We encouraged everyone who was interested in service to the community (members and non-members) to participate in DISCERNMENT SESSIONS over a 5 week period: June 24 - July 22. Consensus was achieved during the final session... it was very exciting! For more details, click here.
