Reach Local is the local outreach initiative of One Harbor Church. As a church we exist all for the sake of the Gospel, and tangibly displaying God’s love is a vital part of that mission. Following the example of Jesus, we seek to identify the physical, spiritual, and relational needs of our neighbors and community and respond using a holistic, Gospel-centered approach. This can happen through community engagement such as supporting local events, responding to natural disasters, or assisting non-profits within our city. Additionally this can happen at the family or individual level through construction projects, financial assistance and counseling, moving assistance, and many other local service opportunities.
