IMPACT THE COMMUNITY
Find a way to get involved and be the church right here in our community.
We were all created to make a difference with our lives. We weren’t just created to consume resources but to make a contribution in the world.
Whenever we serve others we are serving God and fulfilling one of the purposes for our lives. 1 Peter 4:10, “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”
CHRISTIAN RESOURCE CENTER
The purpose of Christian Resource Center is to network and support ministries, churches, businesses and individuals to work together to demonstrate and proclaim the Gospel for all people by addressing real needs. We are evangelical believers sharing the Gospel as we meet tangible needs. Partners in the CRC will provide housing, life skills, household items, food, clothing, specialized resources, house hold items, education (GED, ESL, trades), employment, counseling, discipleship and other services/goods that are identified as needs of families in the community. Our goal is to promote spiritual growth, connection with a faith family and financial stability to bring families to wholeness and sustainability.
