Mission - 2012 Faith in Action

On October 6th and 7th of 2012, we modified our normal worship service and put our Faith in Action.

We were able to feed 45 men and women at Light of Life, repair, dry wall and paint the Family Promise house in Crafton, make 32 blankets for Family Promise, clean the church doors, pews and stairwells and do some ground work and provide produce to Miryam's house.

To all of you who opened your hearts this past weekend (whether inside or out) or helped us coordinate

these efforts...

FIA 2012 was a HUGE success thanks to the many hands, in and behind the scenes!

The Mission and Outreach Committee would like to thank all of you who came out and participated




See below for details about our "Faith in Action".
