New Hope Serves

New Hope Serves

Saturday, May 4
God is at work and we want to join Him! New Hope Serves is an opportunity for the entire church family to set aside a day to see what God is doing in our community.

We're working alongside those who serve our community and are developing relationships with people who are often overlooked: the elderly, the disabled and the poor. You'll find a wide variety of projects taking place simultaneously throughout the day, each designed to strengthen our relationships as a church with strategic community leaders or community members. 

Worship Night

Friday, May 3, 7pm, Ministry Center
Prepare your heart to serve our community by worshipping God in prayer and song. All are welcome. No registration for the worship night.
