Our Commitment to Mission

The heart of our church is mission. The ways we reach out in service include:

 Eastern Area Community Ministries (EACM)

A cooperative effort of more than thirty churches and business partners, EACM ministers to the needs of residents in the eastern Jefferson County area. They are located in the church basement, which can be accessed via the lower parking lot. For more information, please visit their website here.

Emergency Assistance

A major part of EACM's umbrella efforts, Emergency Assistance is an emergency assistance organization that operates a food bank and provides assistance with paying for rent and utilities. It is located in the church basement and staffed by volunteers. English and Spanish-speaking aides are available.

   Other Outreach

Civic ServicesWe provide space for the small cities in the area to hold their City Government meetings.

EACM Back to SchoolWe as a congregation support the Back to School Program for EACM by providing school supplies, backpacks, and clothing for school age children.

Food for FirstThe first Sunday of each month, the congregation donates food to the Emergency Assistance Food Bank.

Hope4child – This organization provides relief for orphans in
Sri Lanka.

Hunger WalkWe join with many others to participate in Louisville’s annual Hunger Walk each year. In 2008, thanks to this project, more than 2,000 people helped raise over $100,000 to fight hunger in Kentuckiana.

Kentucky Refugee MinistryWe routinely collect and distribute household items designed to help refugee families get a better start on their new life in our community.
