Reaching beyond the local congregation for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) is of paramount importance to us. We partner with mission agencies, send out our own people, and connect with indigenous peoples all over the world to accomplish this end.

The Diaconate Board

The Diaconate Board is responsible for ministries that enable the congregation to reach out to people in need in our church and community. Assistance is provided for people who need transportation to our Sunday morning worship service, special services, Wednesday Night Program, or even doctor’s appointments. Volunteers are organized to provide a dinner meals for a family with an illness or special circumstance. Urgent prayer requests can be called into the church office where they are passed on to the Emergency Prayer Chain, Pastors and Staff. If you are not currently on a prayer chain but would like to be added, please call the church office.
