Bridge Building

We see in the news every day the need for our nation to devote more time and resources to our nation’s infrastructure.  I think within the church itself, we need to evaluate the bridges we need to build that allows us inroads to our own communities with the message of the gospel.  An important question to ask ourselves is “Would the community miss us if we were to close our doors tomorrow?”  Our goal is to continue to reach into the lives of those God has put around us, to help meet tangible needs so they can experience God’s love.  In light of that, we have begun several different bridge building efforts to come along side our community in need. 

If you have an interest in serving in any of these bridge building efforts, or see additional bridge-building opportunities, please click here:  FOR MORE INFORMATION

  • First Responders - Local Fire Departments

     We have started a relationship with the local fire departments in our area.  We have provided them a meal for one of their monthly meetings and have brought cold drinks to some of their practices. We continue to look for other ways to bless them. We have also reached out with gift baskets to our local police departments.

  • Veterans Outreach

    We have begun to partner with local Veterans organizations to help in any way they need in assisting with the lives of all our veterans. We have helped with the annual lunch cruise on the lake for veterans from the VA, hosting luncheons for the Skaneateles American Legion, and helping veteran’s families in need at Christmas. We believe we need to show our appreciation for the men and women who have protected our freedoms, and in doing so show them the love of Jesus and the hope they can find in Him.

  • Refugees - Syracuse Nepali Church

    We have partnered with the Syracuse Nepali Church over the last 7 years to help meet the physical and spiritual needs of the many refugees we have on the north side of Syracuse. We hold annual backpack and coat drives throughout the year as well as give financial support to this church to help them reach the inner city with the gospel.

  • Rescue Mission - Auburn

    We have begun a partnership with the Rescue Mission to prepare a meal once a month (2nd Wednesday) for those who are homeless in Auburn.
