The focus of Local Missions is:

  1. To find ways to connect with and give back to the town of Ipswich.
  2. To support the efforts of ministries located on the North Shore where we as a church and/or members of our church are involved.
  3. Educate and remind the congregation about the importance of representing Christ no matter where He has placed us.

Often we organize opportunities for our members to get involved in the community and/or local ministries.
Please watch this website and/or the weekly announcements for any volunteer opportunities we are involved in.
