Through our local outreach initiatives, we partner with several organizations and ministries, working together to meet the practical and spiritual needs of the communities we serve.
It’s our mission to change lives across the sanctuary, across the street and across the sea. These are the many ways members of our congregation are making a significant impact in our world.

We hope you’ll join us!
