Jesus wants you to bring His presence and His love to meet the needs of those in our region. You can do this in relationship with people you run into every day (neighbours, family, coworkers, etc.) or you can detour from your regular path and build relationships with people living on the margins.
Get out of your comfort zone and share the love of Jesus in prison, in long term care facilities or other unconventional situations! Serve in a team setting and watch God transform lives.
