For you were called to be free, brothers; only don’t use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but serve one another through love. – Galatians 5:13
We don’t serve to obtain or keep salvation, for salvation cannot possibly by achieved by man’s works. Jesus secured our salvation on the cross. But as believers of God and followers of Christ, we joyfully answer the call to serve God by serving others. We offer opportunities for serving within the church family, within our community, and around the world.

If you’d like to help with sorting clothes or working at our distribution days, contact volunteer Jan Durbin.
Harvesters Food Distribution - We partner with our Elmhurst neighbors and Harvesters to distribute food to anyone in need the second Tuesday of each month from 8-10 AM in the Kansas Expocentre parking lot (distribution begins at 9). Anyone may receive food, no qualifications necessary. Volunteers are always needed to help with managing traffic and parking, intake of recipients, and organizing and distributing food.
Makeover Ministry - Originated to serve the needs to hurricane victims moving into our community, this ministry provides gently used furniture and household goods to those who suddenly find themselves relocated without their belongings, due to domestic situations or natural causes. This ministry also does cleaning, painting, and other simple updates in homes. Please contact volunteer Melody Congdon with requests for assistance or if you plan to contribute large items.
Foster Care and Adoption Ministry - This ministry provides support for people with a heart for adoption or fostering children. Whether or not you are an adopting or fostering family, there are opportunities for you to be involved. Learn more.
