Serve Your Community

Community Outreach Team


“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” —Matthew 25:35, 36

Hope Campus

Hope Campus opened its doors in September 2017 and offers a variety of key services to those in need. To support their efforts and minister to those receiving their services, we go at least twice a month to serve meals at Hope Campus. We're there every other Monday, and we're always looking for more volunteers who want to help those in need!



Cavanaugh Church is pleased to partner with Free Will Baptist Family Ministries in assisting hurting children living in the River Valley. Please see the attached links to learn more.
