Community Connection

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10 NIV)
God's Grub

Every second Sunday of the month we cook up a feast that is open to all and free!  From 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. people come and go, enjoy a good meal and great company.

We started God’s Grub as a simple community meal to serve hungry people, but soon found that what people enjoyed most was not just the delicious food but the chance to be together and make new friends.

We Can Be The Change

Every year during the summer, we come together to accomplish 100+ projects for Big Lake residents with a need, in an event we call We Can Be The Change. Projects that we have done range from building a wheelchair ramp, to painting, to yard work, and more!  Our focus during this event is not just on completing the projects, but on the relationships discovered, built, and strengthened in the process.

We always come away feeling that we received more than we gave from the amazing people that we have the opportunity to help.
