Called to love, serve, & seek justice in our city
Jesus calls us to embody his presence & proclaim his Kingdom.
He calls us to love Him by loving our neighbor. This is both a great privilege & a great responsibility. It involves proclamation & presence, word & deed. It involves working toward Kingdom justice for all of creation. Here you’ll find some areas in which we plug-in & serve. These are opportunities to reflect the love of Jesus & the power of the Kingdom through service, reconciliation work, compassion, & mercy.
