Helping our neighbors
C3 supports many external organizations. We encourage church members to support them as well. As a church body we select four to six organizations to focus our attention on each year. We alternate organizations based on their needs. We do support other organizations as well, but the majority of our support goes to this year’s Focused Outreach Organizations.
