In his first message as our Senior Pastor, Herb asked, “Do We Really Want to Be Great?” The answer to that question is “YES!” because we are all great when we serve others in His name. We encourage families to find a way to serve individually and together. Providence supports the Midwest Food Bank, the Real Life Center, Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center,, Square Foot Ministry and many other worthwhile organizations, and each ministry area provides opportunities for service throughout the year.
