Church Missions

If you are looking at a church that is engaged with its community, Goose Creek is the place for you. The members of church love to invite the community into the church for those who need support or who just want a volunteer opportunity. We also enjoy going out into the community to bring joy and comfort. Take a look at our ministries. We look forward to you joining us in them soon.

Each ministry has its own link as well. Please check our  Facebook page for recent closings or changes. We work closely with Charity Tracker to help serve your needs.
