Why are we serving here?

ForColumbia’s mission – to bring Christians together to love and serve our neighbors – puts us in touch with those in Columbia who may feel more marginalized;  elderly individuals, single parents, those with disabilities, or who are struggling with financial instability. This year, we are again serving at 313 Hogan Drive, a home that is being used as a local food pantry and support center with active programs. When we give our time for the benefit of others, we send the message that they are valuable.
