Outreach ministries are pathways that transform hearts of worship into hands of service by building relationships with our neighbors in need and by partnering with them to create a healthy, just, peaceful and sustainable neighborhood and world.

Outreach Trips (youth/adult)
High school students and their adult mentors travel to other countries to support projects that improve the quality of life for people there.
Adult trips focus on assisting low-income residents as well as supporting social justice projects.
