Serving Your Community

Learn about the 2018 Thanksgiving Food Drive

God has placed us in our city to be a lighthouse for Christ. To be most effective we must partner with other like-minded churches, agencies and ministries. We seek to earn the right to proclaim the gospel through building relationships, meeting needs and displaying love. We partner with several ministries throughout the Brandywine Valley in various ways including financial support, service opportunities, training and events. Prayerfully consider serving with one of our ministry partners.

Listed below are some of the local organizations with which we routinely partner. Click on the name of the organization to learn more about them through their websites.
