Local Outreach

Love Rockwood is our church-wide effort to make a major impact in one specific area of Gresham. Local Outreach connects you, your family or small group with the best ministry fit so you can reach out in His name. From serving the homeless a meal to helping a child learn to read; there’s a way for you to express God’s love in Rockwood.
