Community Connections

We partner with various ministries and organizations around our community. We want to live out our vision of intentionally impacting people and places with a Kingdom purpose. These are some of the people and places we have connected with to accomplish that very purpose.

We have partnered with our local police department for two specific events: National Night Out and Shop With A Cop.

  • National Night Out is all about getting the neighborhoods out together. The idea behind the event is to bring neighborhoods together to build community that will carry over into fighting crime within their neighborhoods.
  • Shop With A Cop gives children the opportunity to purchase gifts for themselves and family members during the Christmas season.
