Our Outreach Mission is to extend our culture and values of love and compassion outside the walls of our church for the betterment of our community. Our strategy is to target the young, the elderly, and those in need of God’s love and understanding. We currently reach out to children through spending time with foster children at The South Mountain Children’s Home and reading programs at Glen Alpine Elementary School. We address the needs of the elderly by providing lunches and entertainment during our Happy Tuesday events. We show compassion throughout our community with gifts of food and time at the Burke United Christian Ministry in Morganton and The Glen Alpine Food Pantry in Glen Alpine. Our hope is that being living representations of God’s love and compassion will call people to God’s wonderful message.
