Local Missions

Extend the Love of Christ

A large part of what makes a local church vibrant is its level of engagement with the outside world. Many of us are involved in ongoing local missions projects to show our neighbors how much God loves them.

Christmas Outreach

Hope Women’s Center

Our church partners with Hope Women’s Center in Phoenix, a Christian ministry which seeks to equip mothers and families through providing parenting and life skills education, spiritual guidance, mentoring, and resources to help them make wise decisions for the future. Additionally, we support the center’s Hope Boutique each Christmas through the Stars of Hope Tree, purchasing needed items listed on each star.

Stars of Hope Tree, Nov 18 & 25, Dec 2 & 9: Support women and children in need by helping to stock the “Hope Boutique” at Hope Women’s Center this Christmas.

Family Christmas Celebration, Dec 13: Sign up to volunteer for this special Christmas event and celebrate with the women and children at Hope Women’s Center’s Phoenix location. Contact Tammy Abernethy at tammy@hopewomenscenter.org.

Osborn Health and Rehab

God is at work in the lives of the residents, their families, and the staff at Osborn Health and Rehab in Scottsdale. Our ministry provides semi-monthly worship services, one-on-one time and special events (i.e. music, games and dance performances) to residents. Volunteers are needed, including youth, community groups, and those with special musical or creative talents. Experience God’s movement in the hearts of these people. The worship service is held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month, at 2:15 PM in the Grand Room at 3333 N. Civic Center Dr., Scottsdale, AZ 85251. Each Christmas, we work together to create a special Christmas celebration for the residents.

First Sunday Food Day & Hope Help

On the first Sunday of the month we collect items for the Camelback High School Food Pantry and Hope Women’s Center. Please bring the following donation items to the Welcome Center. Let’s love our neighbors as ourselves!

Camelback High School Food Pantry: Canned Chicken, Canned Tuna, Peanut Butter, Rice, Pasta, Canned Fruit, Mac n Cheese, Canned Beans, Canned Soup, Canned Vegetables, and Breakfast Cereal

Hope Women’s Center: paper towels, conditioner, bar soap, tooth paste, deodorant, bottled water, laundry soap, and cleaning supplies

Camelback High School Food Pantry

On the first Sunday of each month we collect imperishable food items for the Camelback High School Food Pantry. The youth group places scripture quotes on each food item and a member of our Saints Alive (50+) ministry delivers the food to the pantry. It’s exciting to see the whole church work together to respond to over 300 verses in the Bible where God calls us to serve those in need. With our church located in Paradise Valley, one of the wealthiest suburbs in Phoenix, we might ask, is there really a need? The answer is yes! Statistics show that over 28% of Arizona children face hunger on a daily basis, (that’s half a million children), and at Camelback High School that statistic rises to over 60% of the students. From Camelback Bible to Camelback High, we have the opportunity to tackle this issue head on: to love our neighbor as ourselves, to put our faith into action, and to exemplify Christ’s love.


Is this not the fast which I chose, to loosen the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and break every yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, to cover him; and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light will break out like the dawn, and your recovery will speedily spring forth; and your righteousness will go before you; the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. – Isaiah 58:6-8
