LET's SERVE OUR COMMUNITY & LOVE OUR CITIES

We're closely partnering with a few organizations who are working to address the needs that have come out of the aftermath of George Floyd's death. We are looking to these partners, who have already been working in those communities, to tell us what needs and service would help right now. The world invites us to live our lives for ourselves, but Jesus invites us to live for something far greater.  He calls us to turn our faces outward and live for the sake of others. We call this Missional Life

  • MeLA SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

    We have the opportunity to love and support our friends at MELA with a SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE. From now until August 23 we are collecting school supplies to ready the students at MELA for a new school year. Whether they end up meeting in our lower level or have to do distance learning (or a combo of both) they will need supplies. 

     

    You can donate by ordering supplies through the Amazon or Target lists below, or by purchasing supplies from the list. Once you have purchased them, you can either drop them off at Open Door. Shelves for collection are directly inside the main doors or have them shipped directly to MELA (hint: they have the same address as the church).
