The Purpose of outreach

Gurnee Community Church Outreach puts into action the key purpose of "serving Gurnee and beyond with the love of Christ." By the use of our compassionate hands-on service and our spiritual gifts and resources, we further search, discover, and minister to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people of all cultures and generations, first locally and then beyond. We seek those opportunities that will strengthen our commitment to serve others in a Christ-like character and further nurture them in their intimate relationship with God.
