Annually the church distributes groceries that feed more than 1200 people during the thanksgiving holiday and distributes toys to more than 500 children during Christmas. The community is supported through weekly food give-ways, community computer lab, free car washes, annual big days, community health awareness, financial fitness workshops, children’s summer lunch program and boot camp, homeless feeding, showers, clothing and washer and dryer services and a pay it forward program where members do random acts of kindness of complete strangers .
