 THE UZONE (click on link)


The Uzone was established in the spring of 2007 as an off-site outreach ministry to the youth and families of our community.  Volunteers and staff provide summer tutoring to elementary-age youth.  During the school year, the Uzone serves as an after school drop-in center and also provides tutoring help for middle through high school age youth. Our congregation underwrites the majority of the Uzone budget through mission monies, grants and special offerings.  Other monies come from community grants, private and various organization donations, which recognize the work of the Uzone as a tremendous asset to our community!
