    Does your church minister to those in your community?

    Are the attenders primarily from your community or do you draw from a wide region of your area?

    Most of our attendees don't have to travel very far to attend.

    We are Community-focused.

    Weekly events this time of year include:

    In the Church building
    Soccer team
    Alcoholic Anonymous
    A local Acting company
    An Art's group
    Cub Scouts
    Boy Scouts
    Basketball
    A high school flag team
    other stuff too

    Out of the Building
    Code Blue – homeless housing during cold weather emergencies
    Food Pantry – two sites
    Revolutionary War Militia
    other stuff

    This list doesn't include the many bible studies that happen in the church and in members homes.

    The church I attend, though it draws from probably a 20 mile radius, focus many of its local efforts on impacting a nearby elementary school, artisans in our community, and area needs.
