Church Wide Notifications:


"I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good that I can do."

During this time, we realize the needs of members may surpass their family group's ability to meet them and we need to pull together as a larger family. Many of you have asked how you may serve members in the church who are in need. In order to match those of you who can help with the growing number of needs during this time, the Care & Compassion Ministry has created a Have a Need, Meet a Need Process.

Click HAVE A NEED, if you have a need and fill out the linked form, providing as much detail as possible.

Click MEET A NEED, if you would like to meet a need - we will be updating this list of needs in the congregation daily, providing enough detail so you know what's being asked. Each need will have a button you hit to sign up to meet the need. Contact details will then be texted to you within 24 hours. Please contact the Care & Compassion Ministry at if you have any questions
