When you serve, you make a difference. 

Alone, we can do a little.  Together, we can do a lot.

Serving isn’t just about providing food and shelter for others in need.  It’s more than that.  It’s holding a hand while we pray, showing up when no one else would, or giving a word of encouragement when the day is long.  When we give freely, we grow.   

We’re taking mission events into the community and encourage our members to engage people where they are.  Mission has its roots in our life with God. 

Some of our ministries include Room at the Inn, Rise against Hunger, Harrisburg Crisis Assistance Ministry, a partnership with Pitts School Road Elementary School and iBelong, a ministry with the Autism community. Through these and many others, we provide opportunities to meet the real needs of the Harrisburg community.  It’s easy to get involved.

“The iBelong team has done so much for us this year!  We are often so focused on academics and the business of the day’s routine, it’s hard to plan fun, seasonal crafts and treats for the kids. Each month, iBelong donated pre-prepared snacks and crafts  for our kids to do. The crafts were so well thought out for our students’ developmental level that they were able to complete the crafts independently. And of course, the students loved their sweet treats!  Thank you for the generous support this year for our kiddos!  We love you!”
