Care & Mission



How we connect with our community . . .

We are called and sent, as followers of Jesus Christ, to “look not to our own interests, but to the interests of others.” (Philippians 2:4). In short, we are a community of people who are called to exist for the sake of others.


We engage in our local community, and broader world, in countless ways.
  • We seek to demonstrate Christ’s love in our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and in our families.
  • Many of us serve in community organizations.
  • We serve as volunteers in local ministries and service organizations.
  • We vote.
  • We serve on medical mission teams and international development organizations.

As a church family, we coordinate our efforts toward a variety of local, national, and international ministries. We combine our time, effort, talents, and money in efforts to bring hope and healing to our broken world. These efforts include:
  • Many levels of support for Neighborhood House, FISH, and West Women’s Shelter.
  • Spearheading the Southwest Hope Food Campaign.
  • Cuba Mission Partnership.
  • We offer our parking lot as a natural habitat restoration, and as a “Park and Ride.”
  • We host Boy Scout Troop 150
  • We host monthly dinners for Shepherd’s Door (transitional housing for women and children).
  • Bay Area Rescue Mission Partnership.
  • Please explore our “Service and Missions” page for full details about these, and many other, mission efforts.
