Heart for the Mission

Every heart seen, every hand helping.

The Mission

One of the great tragedies of our generation is that some people are invisible and their cries go unheard. Our vision for Heart for the Mission is that by addressing people's practical needs, locally and globally, they will experience the love of God and know that they are seen. We will do this through a special, collective offering during the month of December and during our Christmas Eve services. Learn how to give and read about the inspiring initiatives below.
