Gear UP Fall Coat & Snack Drive

Borman Elementary students wear uniforms every day to eliminate the distractions and insecurities kids sometimes associate with what they wear to school. UP ministry provides these uniform items each year at the beginning of school and then, again, when the weather gets cooler.

This November, we will be providing the uniform items along with new coats and socks. We are also providing some pantry items that the kids snack on when they get hungry.

UP ministry is collecting monetary donations to help purchase the required uniform items since they are very specific. We have also included a sign-up link below for the other items if you prefer to shop on your own. All donations will need to be delivered to the church by Noon on November 19th.

Worship Without Walls

Worship can take place in many forms, and serving others is one of the main examples of worship that Jesus taught us. Through WOW, our community is reminded that worship isn’t just attending church one day a week—it’s the act of serving others on a day-to-day basis; it’s the little things that accumulate into a lifestyle of worship. Join us for our annual Worship Without Walls event May 20-21, 2017 to join us in our mission to transform the world one life at a time!
