At Christ Community Church, we believe love is more than a sentiment. We believe that to we truly love God and people we must put love into action, by serving the tangible needs of others as often as we can through our LoveActs Ministries. We love one another as Christ loves us. Below are some of the ministries within LoveActs. We truly appreciate partnering with others in the community who have a desire to serve. We believe that small acts done with great love can make a significant impact. If you, your church, or organization want to partner with us or you would like more information about any of these ministries, contact Nicole Gerbino, area leader for LoveActs.
