Established in 2004, Seeds of Hope is an outreach program at the church.

Groups of 10-25 high school students and adults have traveled to South Dakota, West Virginia, Mississippi, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Maryland. Individuals often participate more than once. Immersing themselves in the culture of the homeless, the destitute, and helping to rebuild from disasters (whether natural or human made), participants have offered Seeds of Hope to hundreds of people throughout the years.

Our last Mission Trip, to Puerto Rico, happened in the summer of 2019.

Christian Outreach And Social Action (COSA) is the outreach and mission arm of the church.

COSA is a major committee with a spot on the Church Council comprised of church members that meet on a monthly basis. This group ensures that the Church and its family of members offer their assistance in a timely and coordinated effort to those in need by scheduling sponsorship activities, connecting members with organizations, receiving member donations and sending them to organizations, as well as raising money through various fundraising activities. The primary mission of COSA is to help others through donations of money, food, clothing, and personal effort.

Organizations that COSA sponsors or is actively involved with:

  • Sponsor event for region (18 years now)
  • Actively support our “adopted” social worker and other support to neglected children.
  • We have just signed our Covenant with the organization.
