Serve With Us

We take seriously Jesus' commandments to serve the least of these: the hungry, the thirsty, the naked, the imprisoned, the stranger and the sick, and we believe that God has given everyone something to offer when it comes to showing God's love to the world.

The service of our church is led by our deacons, who organize and coordinate a variety of projects and programs throughout the year. We hope you will get involved:

ADULT MISSION TEAMS

 

Last November, we sent a 12 member mission team to the Appalachian Service Project in Jonesville, VA. ASP is an organization which works to improve the lives of residents in impoverished rural communities in Appalachia. Currently our deacons are organizing local, national and international mission trips. For more information on how you can join our future mission teams, contact deacons Lee Herring, Russ Warren & Ann Johnson.

 

THE ANGEL TREE PROJECT

DECEMBER

Each Christmas, members of our church are encouraged to "adopt" and provide Christmas gifts for an underserved community child.  Each child's age, clothing sizes and Christmas wishes are provided by the Harnett County School System and are noted and ready for selection off our 'angel tree'. For more information, contact deacons Morgan Colmenaro & Susan Hatley.
