REACHING into the community touching the lives of Others
Each day, wherever we go, we seek to meet people in the community and develop relationships with them. Through meeting with people we have opportunity to share the LOVE of JESUS by helping them with needs and by sharing life-on-life with them. God’s desire is that each and every person would have the opportunity to hear about Him and what He has done for them. As we reach out to people we are touching lives for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Being located just miles from Ocean City has some great benefits for the people of Berlin. But it also presents challenges. Because jobs tend to be more plentiful during the tourist season and less so in the off-season many people struggle financially in our town during the winter months. In an effort to give some relief to those who are having financial difficulties the church offers a weekly food pantry. The Pantry is open from 10:00 am-12:00 pm every Tuesday. Residents are able to come once a month and pick up much needed groceries to help in their time of need.
