Our Social Justice team continues to outreach to our local community with a monthly gathering downtown, “Hands Around Aiken”, to share songs of peace, silent prayers and to stand as a community for equality.

We participate in Kiva, an international non-profit organization which allows people to lend money via the Internet to low-income entrepreneurs and students in over 80 countries. Kiva’s mission is “to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.”

Each quarter we designate a local charity to receive 25% of the cash donations from the Sunday collections.

We are a member congregation of ACTS (Area Churches Together Serving), a local organization which provides basic essentials for those in need.
