Season of Giving

As we approach the holiday season, here are a few ways our church reaches out to our community and the world! Consider getting involved and contributing to our Season of Giving.

Hidden Creek Ministry
Join us in bringing Christmas joy to the families of the Hidden Creek community this year! Sign up to sponsor a family right here in our community at the Season of Giving table in our Downtown Campus lobby 10/31/2021 – 11/29/2021 or email Lisa Smith at [email protected] to sign up.

This ministry also runs a year-round clothing closet that needs volunteers to help sort and maintain the closet.
