Serve Locally

The intersection of people in our building and our neighborhood isn’t just our reality; it’s our mission.

Jeremiah 29:7 tells us to “seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you…and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find welfare.”

We may be from different zip codes, school districts, and backgrounds, but when Jesus moves toward us, we move toward one another in service and friendship.

Ways to Give

Community Emergency Service (CES) + VEAP + Every Meal

CES serves the Phillips Neighborhood of Minneapolis. VEAP serves Richfield, Bloomington, Edina, and South Minneapolis. Every Meal provides weekend food for students in Minnesota communities. These partners can get food for lower prices than we can, so your donation dollars have greater impact.
