God's Work Our Hands - Our Ministries

We are God's presence in our community. The Great Commandment found in Matthew's gospel says, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' followed by ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ This is at the center of what we do at Beautiful Savior. We tend to those in need as we celebrate God's grace and mercy. Ministry at Beautiful Savior is diverse. Look over the list below. Would your spiritual gifts be helpful to these ministries?
