Opportunities to Serve

What if you were asked to serve in a mission field where the majority of people would come to know Christ? 85% of people who come to Christ do so before the age of 18! It’s our priority to serve families, and we want to have as many Children’s Ministry helpers as it takes to be excellent. Connect with Steve Jensen or Abby Conger or fill out a communication card and find out how to get involved in making a huge difference in one of the biggest mission fields you can ever reach!

Love Thy Neighborhood Community Partner Spotlight – February. This month we are collecting donations of non-perishable, kid friendly, food items to stock Sacajawea Elementary School’s Emergency Food Pantry. The food we donate will be enough to last the remainder of the school year. Questions? See Dondi today in the church foyer after the morning gatherings.
