Community Ministries is a faith-centered outreach whose goal is to be a catalyst for positive change within the community. To accomplish this goal we focus on the issues of spiritual well-being, reducing social isolation among senior adults, preventing homelessness, neighborhood revitalization and reduction of hunger in our community.

Food Pantry
