Mission outreach, both locally and globally is an essential ministry of our church.
We remember when Jesus said; “When you do it to the least of these you do it unto me.”
We serve Jesus Christ by serving our brothers and sisters in need.
What we give to Mission outreach equals about 24% of what we spend for our overall Operating Budget.
We are a 5 for 5 Church – supporting all 5 of the United Church of Christ’s
