Get Involved

We are all called by God to serve one another. One primary place we can live out this calling is in the local church. All that we have, our time and talents, come from God, and we are designed to use them in helping one another. For that reason, we provide an array of Volunteer Opportunities. We’re certain there’s a place for you to plug in and join the ranks as we, together, serve God and this church.

Outreach

We are changed through the experience of helping others. With more than 20 outreach ministries, there are myriad ways to get involved.

Project Ensonga Sewing Ministry

Ugandan girls without sanitary supplies often stay home from school during their periods, missing up to two months of education and opportunity each year. Project Ensonga makes and distributes sustainable feminine hygiene kits for students in Uganda. Designed by Days for Girls International, the kits are washable and last up to three years. After kits were distributed in other Ugandan schools, girls’ absentee rates dropped from 36% to 8%. A few times per month, the Project Ensonga ministry gets together to help sew and assemble these kits. Contact Leslie Roy for more information >
