First Thursdays of Each Month @ 7 PM
Jesus calls us to love our neighbors. The very first step to loving our neighbors is to know our neighbors. We choose to listen to and learn about the life experiences of those often cast as “other” by society by hearing firsthand accounts of the journeys of God’s children. Topics may include hearing from survivors of sex trafficking, religious /ethnic minorities, individuals who identify as queer, formerly incarcerated individuals, those who have experienced houselessness, those who have battled addictions, and those diagnosed with mental illness.

This mission group responds both locally and across the country to aid in early response, recovery, and rebuilding efforts. While we welcome anyone who is willing to serve in mission, due to the nature of the outreach, volunteers must be 18 or older to participate.
