After Worship, the service begins . . .

We believe that our faith should make a difference in our lives & the world in which we live. Our members & friends engage Waukesha & beyond, through our involvement in a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. Here are a few:


We filled stock boxes for the Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee & distribute food at the Waukesha Food Pantry.


Our youth partner with area special needs students to teach home baking skills on an every-other-month basis.


We partnered with WisHope to hold a Community Picnic to raise awareness of opioid addiction & support a treatment program.

If you’re looking for a place that’s working to build a better world, check out some of the organizations we're partnering with . . .

Looking to get involved in a way you never have before? Prayerfully consider joining the Community Outreach Committee to help a little or a lot depending on what your schedule allows!! Grab a friend & join us in helping one or more of these organizations today.
