Disciples In Action (DIA)

Disciples In Action - DIA designs monthly projects that encourage and provide an avenue for our congregation to serve others, while growing in faith alongside one another.  


Upcoming Disciples In Action Projects
Nov. 18 - Assist with Rise Against Hunger 3 p.m. in the Gym
Dec. 2 - Visit to BARK (Bandit’s Animal Rescue of K-9s) 
Deliver donations, decorate a Christmas tree, and walk dogs.  In order to walk dogs, you must be at least 18 years old or at least 16 years old with a parent.  For safety reasons, there is a limit of eight dog walkers. The team will leave church at 1:00 and return by 3:15 p.m. If you don’t wish to walk dogs, you can decorate the tree and/or brush and love on some sweet dogs.  If you wish to join in on this “PUP-ular” mission, you must contact Kim Farnsworth at 839-7200 or Kimberly.farnsworth007@gmail.com to register.
