Make a Difference

We understand that every follower of Jesus is called to serve. We are a church of servants!

 

Serving within and beyond the Church

Women in Mission (WIM): a ministry of care that meets on the second Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. Visit WIM’s website for more information.

Food Pantry: Providing a well-balanced selection of food for community members in need, the food pantry operates on the second Saturday of every month. While coordinated and administered by Women in Mission, the food pantry needs donations to operate and volunteers to help distribute the food. On the fourth Sunday of the month, food and monetary donations are collected at the altar during the worship service. For more information on lending a helping hand or receiving some assistance, please go to WIM’s website.

Komen: The Chattanooga affiliate serves 16 counties – ten in Tennessee and six in Georgia.  Since its inception, the Chattanooga Affiliate has awarded grants totaling over $2.5 million to local breast health organizations. The annual Chattanooga Race for the Cure takes place in September.
