REACH OUT TO SERVE THE WORLD
It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, you can get involved.
A Place To Serve
Become a light to the world and God’s feet and hands by serving in one of the many missions connected through Main Street. Our congregation participates in active service both locally and globally. We believe that people typically find God when they encounter his people in service to others. We hope you’ll find a mission opportunity that speaks to you.
Love God. Love Each Other. Change the World.
