Voyagers Local Outreach (V.L.O.) provides local opportunities to put your faith into action by loving our neighbors in Jesus’ Name. Partnering with other churches and organizations, we are committed to identifying real needs in our community and responding in tangible ways. Jesus himself came not to be served, but to serve (Matthew 20:28), and we follow His example. If you are interested in joining any of these projects, simply contact the person listed with the organization below.
