The goal of our Local Outreach team is for us to “be the church in the world.” We try to accomplish this by connecting people in relationships. Some of the relationships are built through serving teams that help make Ward a welcoming place for guests. Other relationships are made by people who volunteer to serve in the various helping agencies in our community. Still other relationships are formed through projects and partnerships with other churches. Everyone needs a place to serve, to use their giftedness for God’s glory. The Local Outreach vision is to help people find that place.
