Giving and serving our local community is important.
Anyone can be on a go team. Interested in the next generation? Do you want to serve food? Just want to drive people or things from point A to point B? Go Teams serve with a heart condition and a lifestyle decision where we live out the mission of Jesus by intentionally serving those outside the walls of the church as much as we serve those within the Body of Christ. Let’s be active in the communities we live in and be a part of the transformation!
