One of Our Dreams is to be faithful in caring for the sick, the hungry, those in need of clothing and widows and orphans in their distress. We do not desire this out of guilt (that's taken care of for us), but rather to follow in the footsteps of our Master, Jesus.
We are striving to serve others in many ways, both near and far, in prayer, in financial support, and in direct action. Here are some of things we are involved in:
Food Pantry: The needs in our own backyard are great. One way we try to serve our immediate neighbors is by providing food to those in need. The church pantry is open every 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month at 9am to any individuals who come to our church. See here for more information...
Uganda Missions: Our Springfield family has a strong connection with Uganda, and is currently supporting Bobby and Candice Garner. (Follow the Garners on their blog), as well as James Okumu. What great people these folks are!
Back-to-School Give-Away: We help scores of our neighbors kick off the new school year with new school supplies in our annual Back-to-School Give-Away.
Operation Christmas Child: Each Christmas season we help brighten the lives dozens of children around the world, as we make gift packages in support of Operation Christmas Child.
