Service & Outreach
“Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.” (1 Peter 4:10-11, NRSV)
We support with prayer, service, and financial gifts a variety of ministry opportunities both locally and globally. We have an ongoing regular financial commitment to the work of Pastor Charles and Anita Jackson in Mongolia; to the Robin’s Nest Children’s Home in Jamaica; and to the Kikatiti School in Tanzania. 2015-16 is the third year a member of our congregation is engaged in a year of overseas mission, with Chad Nelsen in Rwanda as a part of Young Adults in Global Mission.
We also reach out in love and service to the community and region in ways such as serving meals to the guests at Esther’s Kitchen in Marshall, by creating and delivering many quilts throughout the year, and in starting and housing a clothing ministry for babies, children, and youth called, “Hunter’s Helping Hands”, among many others.
