During November we have the opportunity to partner with Mountain View Elementary School and Good Samaritan Ministries through serving!
Our partnership with Mountain View serves one of the most economically and educationally challenged areas of our city. Since 2010, we have sought to be an encouragement to the school and community through tangible expressions of God’s love.
