Why We Give

Luke 6:28 - "give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap, for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”

Because of our congregation's generosity, we've been able to launch our new protein pantry, launch our Scholarship Program for graduating high schoolers entering college, donate $500 worth of gift cards Toys for Tots SW during the Christmas season, care for our community members in crisis, and offer our space to neighbors for free or discounted rates. Help us to continue becoming God's beloved community.
