We know that in order to be relevant, we must be reaching out and connecting with people around us in the community and the world. We are called to help God transform the world. Our call is rooted in the work Jesus did and in his message to all those who suffer and seek belonging. We perform this work by coordinating our own ministries and partnering with other local organizations. Our major missions and ministries are listed below. If the Spirit is prodding you to start a new effort, we would love to hear it! Please feel free to contact Pastor Robin or any of the leaders idenfied below.
