Outreach & Missions


We believe that mercy is fundamental to all that God does in salvation. We therefore aim to extend compassion to one another, and to each person God brings into our lives. We believe that the church does not exist for itself, but rather to actively demonstrate God’s mercy to all. We are committed to being generous in every aspect of our lives, to “give away our best,” whether people or resources, in order to expand God’s Kingdom.

Our goal is to be present in our community through small group initiatives, where those outside the church are invited in ("Matthew" parties). In addition, the church sponsors periodic events. Check out our News and Events webpage for current activities.
