Community Outreach

What is Community Outreach?

Community Outreach is how we put our love and gifts into actions. We partner with our local schools, local businesses and have a food pantry here at our church to serve our community.

A word from our Community Outreach Leader Monica Lim

Whether on your own or with a group if you are looking to help, you'll find resources below.
