In the Church

Why We Serve in the Church

We are called by God to do good, practice justice, kindness and love. John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, held that loving and caring for our neighbors is a spiritual practice that is just as important as worship and prayer

Safe Spaces Lebanon

Safe Spaces Lebanon is one of our mission partners. They work to make sure the 1.5 million refugees that have fled into Lebanon from the devastating wars in Syria are not forgotten. 

We support this organization financially and work hard to be able to travel to the Safe Spaces Center (which provides remedial and psychosocial support to orphans and widows affected by the war) as often as we can. 

Rev. Rachel Griffin Baughman, Senior Pastor serves on the Board of Directors at Safe Spaces Lebanon.
