Mission & Outreach
Our vision of “Putting Love First” focuses us on serving God through the way in which we serve one another. Mission is the way we offer the love of Christ to those in need. Outreach is the way that we connect with our community.
Opportunities to serve in mission are offered on a regular basis and will be announced with our other events.
Outreach events are offered as a way to intentionally connect with our community and invite others to join us on the faith journey.

Escape from Poverty
Escape from Poverty’s Mission is to ignite hope, success and transformation by empowering impoverished families to Escape from Poverty by providing power courses, relationships, and motivation within faith-based communities.
Our ministry to assist Escape From Poverty will begin with their next session which begins on Thursday, August 18th and will continue through Thursday, December 15th. Their meetings are held every Thursday beginning at 5:30 in the afternoon. This program is designed to help individuals escape the cycle of poverty. There are two groups that attend, those who are attending to begin their process of escape and the other group who have returned to gain additional assistance as they continue their journey.
There is a need for assistance with meals for their meetings. There are twenty-five to thirty people who meet regularly. If you would be available to either provide a meal, Gift Certificates for a meal or financial assistance, please call the church office at 337 233-3811.
