Special gifts, skills and experiences we have to fulfill our mission:
We are blessed with a generous congregation that enables us to contribute to the following programs: Grocery Cart Sunday, Meals on Wheels, Food Pantry and the Hastings College Scholarship program.
As a congregation we also support One Great Hour of Sharing, Sunday School local mission support and a joy offering. We provide on site worship service as well as communion for the local care home and the retirement center. An audio tape ministry is provided to the home bound members. We have a dedicated music program with a wide variety of talented people.
One of our strengths is a strong core of lay leadership within our congregation that is always willing to step forward and participate both in the church and in the community.
