In a Nutshell

Dare to Care was created from our passion to love and serve the people of our community.

FAQs

How does it work?

 Each month we look for opportunities to serve. We call each one an “OutServing Opportunity.” We put together all the details, then ask you to consider jumping in with us and heading out to serve our amazing community!

Do I need to have any certain skills?

Nope! We will train you as needed based on the Out-Serving Opportunity. We’ve had 3 year-olds helping out, so don’t let the word “serve” scare you away!

I'm ready—how do I dive in?

Typically we have sign-up sheets in our campus lobbies, but you may also contact us via one of our amazing Pastoral Assistants, Corrinne Diller.

Let It Snow!
Due to the extremely inclement weather, we unfortunately have to cancel services today. We're disappointed, but we want you safe!

We'll still post the sermon online—even if Robert has to preach it into his iPhone—so please visit our Online Sermons webpage on Monday to watch/listen to it (sermons are posted by 9am each Monday).

We truly apologize for the inconvenience! We encourage you to find a few precious moments to spend with the Lord today. Stay warm and enjoy an amazing, God-made snow day!
Let It Snow!
Yes, it's definitely snowing out there. However, we're not sure if we need to cancel yet. So CHECK BACK HERE in the morning to see what we've had to decide. We're praying (of course) that we can have church as scheduled. :)

Now of course SAFETY is our greatest concern, so no matter what we decide, if you do not feel comfortable coming to church, please do not feel obligated! If you do miss the service this weekend, please visit our Online Sermons webpage to watch (or listen to) the weekend's sermon. Sermons are posted by 9am each Monday.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! :)
This is custom text. Checking to see how it looks when something goes wrong and custom text is necessary. This is oh, so fun stuff! Yay! Paco is so cool. No really, he is. At least that's what he tells himself (shhh, don't tell him he said so to himself, he'd get really angry at himself if he knew he was talking to himself about himself)...
Church is ON!
Yes, it's definitely snowing out there. But you know what? We're going to go for it and hold church services as scheduled!

Now of course SAFETY is our greatest concern, so if you do not feel comfortable coming to church, please do not feel obligated! If you do miss the service this weekend, please visit our Online Sermons webpage to watch (or listen to) the weekend's sermon. Sermons are posted by 9am each Monday.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! :)
