Outreach

Churches in Mission is a non-profit, faith based assistance program providing food, household items, clothing and othernecessities for families in need. As one of the multiple churches that support the program we contribute financially, have food drives to stock the shelves, provide volunteers, and have open our facilities for special distributions of school supplies and food.

Concert on the Lawn is a free concert held on the front lawn on the third Saturday in May.  We have hosted this fund raisingevent since 2003. Our vision was for each child in the Mooresville area to return to school with a new backpack and school supplies. We have seen God’s hand at work through members of this community as we have pulled together to bless the children.
