Mission is the heartbeat of who we are and it's how we live into God's dream. It might look like packing backpacks full of food for children so they don't go hungry. It might look like helping make sure families don't have to choose between putting food on the table and purchasing basic hygiene items. God's mission is unending and it's the place where pain and hope intersect. It's also where we meet Jesus in unexpected ways. We believe that by connecting with the pain and hope of our community, we can provide life-giving transformation to those around us and be transformed, ourselves, in the process.
