Veteran’s Ministry Accomplishments

La Casa de Cristo’s Veterans Ministry has been blessed with a wonderful inaugural year.  Between events and monthly breakfasts which include a guest speaker, the ministry strived to serve those who have served.  A heartfelt thank you to the many volunteers who have provided their time and support in this ministry’s mission. 

Growing disciples in a community where love works.
