Locally, our congregation shares its community-centered compassion and reaches out to those within the Aiken community who might need assistance, support, or just a temporary hand-up for any number of reasons.

Through the use of our time, talents, and treasure, we partner with ACTS, Children’s Place, Christ Central, Community Medical Clinic, as well as a number of other nonprofits in the area.
