The work of the Board of Mission and Social Concerns is to foster awareness of human needs and to answer these needs. Our goal is to involve all members and friends of our congregation in this outreach. Our church reflects the passion of our members for helping others locally, nationally, and globally as we have done, as a center of faith and service, for over150 years, and as we have pledged to do well into the future. The board works to provide education and leadership for this goal. At every opportunity we aim to reach out to improve the quality of life for people in our community and in our world, and to help in whatever ways we are able.
Our regular Sunday Worship services begin at 10:00 AM.

We are one of several downtown churches that provides Free Soup Lunch each Wednesday from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Currently we are serving sack lunches outside and hope to be back in the Atrium soon. All are welcome and nothing is asked in return for this meal.
