Families in Mission

We believe that loving and serving others is an important part of discipleship. We show our love for God in how we love others. Therefore we seek opportunities to involve children in loving our neighbors through acts of service and justice. 

Upcoming Mission Projects

September 27, 6 pm

Preparing for Worship

Children, along with their parents, will learn what it is like to prep for a worship service on Sunday morning. They'll help fill the cup trays for communion, organize the pews and worship gear shelves, and learn about other "behind-the scenes" tasks that need to be done. If you are coming straight from another obligation, you are also welcome to join us for a "picnic dinner" beforehand — bring your own meal, but eat with others!

October 21, 3 - 5 pm

Trunk or Treat at the Fall Festival

Every year at our Fall Festival, we have a Trunk or Treat where the visitors can go trunk to trunk and get candy! All you need to do to participate is sign up your car and decorate. It's a fun and easy way to volunteer that all ages can have fun with. Sign up coming soon! Here's some inspiration from past years:
