August 1st is Outreach Sunday!
We are continually striving to be the “Church” to our community. It is our desire to consistently and strategically foster relationships with leaders and organizations right where we live by serving them and tangibly showing them the love of Christ. Outreach Sunday is a day full of opportunities for all ages to serve. Please consider the different opportunities that are available and sign up using the QR Code in the bulletin and indicating which venue you would like to choose and the number of people in your family participating at the bottom of the online form, or contact the church office to be included on a team. We will be offering a pizza lunch to all participants (excluding venues where lunch is provided) following the morning service @ 12 PM. All ministries will begin @ 1 PM.
Join us as we share the love of Jesus in our community!
Kalamazoo Gospel Mission: We will be arriving near the conclusion of Sunday lunch. We will be helping with lunch clean-up, beginning dinner preparation and organization of food supplies. It is a great opportunity to assist an organization that we support who are ministering to those in need in our community.

Portage Central High School: We are blessed to be able to develop a relationship with one of our local high schools. Do you like gardening? We will be working in the high school garden as well as other tasks given to us by the high school principal. A little bit of hard work will be a great way to further our relationship. Gloves and garden tools will be helpful. Lunch will also be provided on site by the high school.

Alternatives of Kalamazoo: Alternatives promotes the value of human life by serving and counseling families often in crisis situations. We will have opportunities to work both inside and outside. Inside we will be doing some deep cleaning and sorting clothes in their community clothing room. Outside we will be painting and helping maintain the landscaping around their ministry center.

Bickford Senior Living: We will be hosting an ice cream fellowship with many of the residents following their Sunday lunch. Come for a relaxing time of fellowship with our guests. The residents really enjoy meeting people of all different ages from our church.
