Kingdom Living: Local

Love in Action

Love in Action is what we call our organized local efforts of loving those in our area – away from the campus of our church. Right now, the two main focuses of this local effort are:
 
Shumway Leadership Academy
It’s been our desire to love and bless Shumway and the work that they are doing in investing in the community. We have been actively supporting and linking arms to support them: whether playing games with kids during events, blessing them with school supplies, or serving lunch to the teachers, we’ve enjoyed the opportunities that have opened up in process of loving this school.
 
Palm Terrace
Through relationships built at Shumway, we have begun to share the Love of Christ at an apartment complex called Palm Terrace. Two times a month we have a ‘kids day’ where we play games, crafts, sports, and have a meal where the community is invited. Also, once a week we have a Discovery Bible Study in the community and are continually blessed by how God is opening doors.
 
 
 
 

Food Pantry

Through our food pantry, we assist families in our community. Last year, we provided 4,226 food boxes given to 23,306 people in need.
 
The current hours for our food pantry is:
Tuesdays from 10am-1pm.
(and for emergencies upon request)

Feed My Starving Children

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a great way to do something locally that impacts globally. FMSC is a Christian non-profit working to end world hunger. Volunteers have a chance to pack and fund nutritionally complete food formulas that are used in over 70 countries to reverse the effects of malnutrition and starvation. This food is used as a foundational resource by FMSC partners to create healthy communities so that sustainability can happen. Ages 5 and older can volunteer!
