  • Together We can make a difference

    The Together We Can Make A Difference House is a ministry to our local Jackson community. Their mission is to make a difference in our community by connecting needs with resources, by being a point of contact for churches with the community, and by being a resource center for our neighbors and telling them about Jesus.

  • Laundromat Outreach

    As an outreach ministry, we spend the day at a laundromat in town and talk with people and provide quarters. If you are interested in helping, or would just like more information on this outreach, contact the church!
