We love others because Jesus loves us. He provides the perfect example of what it is to be a servant of love.
Throughout His ministry, He humbly cared for others with gentleness, empathy, and dignity. We seek to follow His example.
We partner with many organizations throughout our community that serve those who need comfort and care. As we serve together, we draw closer to one another and provide those we are caring for with a glimpse into God’s Kingdom.
Rather than learning how to best serve our community through trial and error, we partner with well-respected local organizations who have developed strong programs to serve those who need a hand to improve their lives and the lives of their children.
