We believe that the local Church is the hope and answer to the biggest needs of our community. We also believe this is done by equipping and engaging people like you to use your gifts and skills to be the Church in your neighborhood.
This page will have current neighboring ideas and engagement opportunities that will align with the ongoing activities of SERVE 6.8. While we can do great ministry as an organization, we can do so much more when others are actively working towards the same goals too.
