Faith in Action

Why do you serve? As Christians, we serve out of love for our neighbor, unbound by obligation and freed by what God has already done in Jesus Christ. Our hope as a community of faith is to be people who express an attitude of service in how we live our day-to-day lives. Service, then, goes far beyond just signing up “to serve.” Service is recognizing who is need and extending the love of God through action.
