Fighting poverty and injustice so that lives are transformed and Jesus is made known.

We are currently collecting items for the men who are residents at Warren Barr Rehab Center, located a few blocks from our church campus,  for Father’s Day.  We want to shower them with Father’s day cards, handwritten letters, artwork by children or adults, socks and white undershirts to let them know they are not forgotten.  Items may be dropped off during the week in the office lobby from 9:30 to 4pm, mailed to the church, or brought to the service on Sunday mornings.


Learn ways to engage our community members walking through homelessness. If you are interested in serving in this capacity,  contact Michael Goggins at [email protected].
