OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE
works to identify and serve the needs in our community and the world while
being a resource to our church family on providing opportunities to serve those
needs within our greater community.
There are many small groups that
serve and support mission in our
community and globally.

spirit and to reflect God’s love through your words and actions.

simple planned act at a time.

shelter. A team from Lake Street serves
there on a quarterly basis, providing evening meals, childcare services and
