'Building a loving and growing community centered on Christ'
When you are truly part of a community that loves, serves and gives, a beautiful bond forms.
You see people serving in the background, and you praise God for them.
You see the joy of service in others, and you want to follow suit. You see a need, and long to meet it.
And as you serve, you grow in your own discipleship and sense of belonging.
