Beyond The Walls

This is our home, these are our neighbors, and we have a call upon our lives to compassionately walk with them. We hope you will see something below that speaks to your talents and gifts where you can say, Yes to God, and learn your neighbors name through service.

Serving Guide

In Matthew's Gospel, Jesus sends his disciples out into the world to serve. We at Myers Park have felt this call and we have chosen to actively respond. It is important to us that we meet people where they are in life so that, we are contributing to sustainable communities. Take a look and pray about one of our missions below, and how about join us for one?

What to Expect Serving Guide Scholarships

We as a church strive to listen, embrace and then discuss how we best can be a voice of advocacy and justice for our ostracized sisters and brothers. We feel that the below opportunities present themselves to be places where we are able to grow in our faith as the body while serving the best way we feel led.
