So much gratitude and hope filled the halls at FOCUS Sunday Supper this Labor Day weekend. Our next date for this service project is Sunday December 10. Mark your calendars!
Faith in Action
Our mission is to understand and apply the social teachings of the church in order to affect positive change and be the face of God to all in our community. We will do this by building relationships, promoting unity, bringing awareness to issues and actively engaging with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
