Community Partnerships

Learn about the organizations with whom we’re partnering

The church is not limited to a building and it is our passion to be the love of Jesus in our local community, making followers of Jesus wherever we go. We cannot do this on our own and so we intentionally love to partner with other organizations.

 

Below you will find the list of these partnerships, along with a short description and direct link to their websites, as available.

 

If you would like to volunteer, please send us an email at partnerships@autumnridgechurch.org  and let us know how you prefer to be contacted. We will do our very best to connect with you within one business day!
