Christians in Action/Service Opportunities

 

Our mission statement and motto at Family of Christ is "Making Disciples, Making a Difference". God calls all of us together to be God's hands and feet to serve in a world of hurt. Each month Christians in Action (CIA) places one or more ministries in the spotlight, and invites your participation.
