Local Outreach Ministries

34 Stitches

34 Stitches uses art to create personal designs on hats as a bridge to connect with young people. Through this connection, we gain the opportunity to share stories of brokenness and pain in order to inspire purpose, offer hope, and encourage healthy choices for each person. 34 Stitches seeks to serve men and women impacted by addiction through supporting causes that provide recovery, education, and activities that promote healthy choices, all while helping young people navigate their own decisions. 

Armor of Light

Armor of Light is a volunteer based non-profit which serves the military through outreach events, counseling, teaching, and practical support. There are 300+ support and volunteer opportunities available each year, both locally and at the bases. Volunteer registration is required.
