Reaching out to share God's love is essential to our faith.

We contribute to those in our local community, and reach out globally.  Our prayers and our actions begin in worship and continue to be expressed throughout the week in many ways.  Giving and receiving are complimentary aspects of God’s creating energy. We reach out to those in need knowing that each one is God’s beloved child.
