Mission Projects

We always love new suggestions of how we can help others! Let us know if you're aware of a need that we could help meet!

Our congregation participates in various mission projects throughout the year. We find it especially meaningful to respond to particular needs that we see arising in our community, both local and global. 

UPCOMING:

We'll begin collecting the Peace & Global Witness Offering during worship on September 5.

The 2021 CROP walk will be on October 17. Stay tuned for more details!
