Serving Our Neighbors


Local Outreach

East Central Ministries

ECM is a community located in the heart of the international district of Albuquerque striving to live in faith through programs, partnerships, and relationships that are happening day-to-day.  (website)


Habitat for Humanity

Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity seeks to build lives as well as houses. Through the houses we build, hope is restored and lives are changed as the cycle of need is broken. (website)


New Mexico Conference of Churches

A community of Christians across the state. We work to build relationships across denominational borders in order to live into Jesus' prayer that we all may be one. The fruit of these relationships in Christ is a common mission to respond to those in need and to advocate on issues of importance.   (website)
