Be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

Acts 1:8

We believe that everyone has a part to play in the kingdom of God and sharing his hope with the world around us. Jesus met many physical needs before He addressed their spiritual need. Meeting a physical need earns you the opportunity to share something deeper, more impactful and everlasting. God has given each of us many different gifts to come and work together for His purpose. It means stepping outside of our comfort zone to get involved in the work that God is doing, to have an impact on the lives of those around us. Whether you are young or old there is a mission opportunity for you!

Local Missions

We have several opportunities for outreach in our community and surrounding areas. Here are just a few.

Disaster Response Team

The team is supported by a utility trailer stocked with chain saws, generators, cleaning supplies, tarps, power tools and a variety of hardware  to get people back on their feet after a devastating event. During serious or complex events, the trailer is also equipped with a computer, solar power, walkie-talkies and a high power 2-way radio. 

Mercy Hour

Mercy Hour is designed to help improve the lives of the homeless and needy in our area. We are the bridge that connects individuals to  God and God's love. We accept them as  they are and encourage them to seek a relationship with God, seek assistance for their addictions, and seek a church home. We do this by providing for some of their needs such as warm showers, new underwear & socks, snacks & drinks, and misc. other basic needs. This ministry meets on Tuesday afternoons at The Bridge.

Interfaith Kitchen

Our goal at the Interfaith Kitchen is to feed the homeless or struggling individuals and families in our area with a warm smile and a loving heart. We are blessed with a wide variety of volunteers from many denominations and community organizations. But we could always use more volunteers. If you have a group and would like to volunteer, please speak with Hollie Hastings (302) 562-5280.

Feeding Program

Feeding and caring for those of all ages that may be marginalized or forgotten in our community. We partner with a local elementary school and multiple senior living facilities to fill in the gaps by meeting some of their physical needs.
