Community Engagement

We collaborate and cultivate relationships with community organizations in Lakewood Ranch, and we also develop our own initiatives–to create pathways for congregation members and others to be the hands and feet of the body of Christ in our community. Our focus is love turned outward; supporting others while sharing the love of God not only strengthens our community, but also encourages others to live out God’s purpose in their lives. Partner organizations, to name just a few, include:

- Bridge A Life
Sharing Christ-centered hope with children who have been abused, abandoned, orphaned, or neglected while supporting foster and adoptive families through awareness, training, outreach, and partnerships.(Click here for info)

- Lakewood Ranch YMCA
