ACTION exists to share the love of Christ through acts of service that change lives and strengthen our communities. We accomplish this by mobilizing volunteers, churches, businesses and agencies to profoundly impact lives, families and communities with hope.
Acting as a catalyst to help raise awareness of needs in our communities, ACTION serves a network of over 80 churches and dozens of participating agencies and schools to meet needs.
Through four primary programs: Serve Day, Serve Every Day, ActionLink, and Community Christmas Shoppe, ACTION volunteers serve under-resourced families, seniors, veterans, and at-risk youth.
Putting our faith in action is our chance to share the gospel with our sleeves rolled up!

children's hunger fund
The mission of Children’s Hunger Fund is to deliver hope to suffering children by equipping local churches for gospel-centered mercy ministry. Over 1 billion people in the world live on less than $1.25 a day. Most lack access to one or more basic human needs: sufficient food, safe drinking water or adequate shelter.
For over 25 years, CHF has provided nourishing food for hungry kids across America and across the world. They distribute Food Packs and other aid through local churches so they can share hope to children and families in their communities. While nutritious food provides temporary relief of physical hunger, the life-giving truth of the gospel provides eternal hope and relief from spiritual poverty.
