Local outreach focuses on what we can do outside our congregation in our community and on our school campuses. We host several events for the community including our annual OKTOBERFEST. We also support other local organizations such as the Edwards Street Fellowship Center, The Lighthouse, Domestic Abuse Family Shelter, The Fieldhouse, and Bethany Christian Services.
We support several international missions including ones in Panama to help improve their health and living.
