Building Bridges Between Community Needs and Christ's Church
Mission at Memorial means being Christ's hands and feet among "the least of these." We are guided by Christ's words, "In as much as you've done to to the least of these, you have done it to me" (Matthew 25:40). Memorial has developed partnerships with several local agencies that enjoy the volunteer efforts of our members and friends.
