Average 150+ Volunteers Per Oiam • 300+ Per Year

Operation In As Much

Our church joins thousands of others across the US each year in a revolution of Christian compassion headed by OIAM, Inc. out of Knoxville, TN. On two Saturdays per year – spring and fall – we launch a one day missions blitz into Raleigh, Wake County and the surrounding area. Numerous mission projects that can be completed in one day are chosen to help meet needs in our community. Church members choose the project they wish to serve on. Many are designed so that family members (children through adults) can serve together. A variety of projects are planned so that any church member – no matter their skills and abilities – can participate.
