  • Backpack Ministry — an ongoing supply of food to children in need at Wellington Elementary School
  • Back to School Store — Just before school starts, we offer school supplies to neighborhood children in need.
  • Vacation Bible School — Each summer, we hold VBS for one week. Due to the pandemic, plans are still being discussed at this time.

During the pandemic, we offer two Bible study options:
