For the Kids!

Year-End Giving

Jesus established the church to be a force for transformative good in the world—a group of people committed to meeting needs, showing compassion, and sharing a message of hope. We believe our purpose as a church is to do just that.

By giving to our general fund or giving above-and-beyond to our Year-End Giving initiative, you can fuel life change and transformation in our neighborhoods and around the world.
