Generosity Feeds

  • Harriet Tubman Elementary School (map)

This fall we want to host an event called Generosity Feeds to pack 10,000 meals for Tubman Elementary School - all in one morning! Tubman is the neighborhood school for most of Columbia Heights and almost 100% of students receive free or reduced priced meals. Teachers are spending their own money to buy food for kids to take home on weekends. We will need a lot of help making this event happen, from fundraising to securing food donations, creating marketing materials, and recruiting volunteers. If you're interested in getting involved or want to learn more, please fill out the form below and a team member will reach out to you.

Easter Service

We are constantly bombarded by bad news, and sometimes it would seem things are hopeless. But what if God is actively working in renewing the world, and we can see evidence of that in Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection? This Easter, we invite you to come hear about the hope that Jesus brings and how He is restoring all broken things at our Easter Service!

Join us at the GALA Theatre in Columbia Heights at 10am to celebrate Jesus and his work on the cross.

Come as you are and bring the whole family! We have an amazing fun Children's Ministry where kids can learn about God as their parents worship and gather up in the theatre.
