“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love to serve one another.” Galatians 5:13
Just as Jesus looked with compassion on others, our desire is to follow Him in sharing our hearts and time in practical ways to bless the city of Columbia. If you feel led to volunteer locally, we’d love for you to be a part of our ministries. We take a portion of our Community Compassion Benevolence Fund to support agencies and ministries caring for the people of mid-Missouri in specialized ways.
We encourage you to look over the following ministries and see if there is one you would like to partner with, either through volunteering or by giving financially. Not sure where to begin? Contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have!
