Serving Our Community and Our World
Jesus was clear when he said, "...go and make disciples of all nations...". Whether here in our own backyard or around the world we want to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Jesus’ ministry started in His local community and we believe deeply here at Discovery that our mission field begins right here in Moreno Valley. That is why we pour a lot of resources, time, and effort into local outreach. We believe that the work done in our own backyard is invaluable, and the first step in actually being the hands and feet of Jesus.
Long time Discovery members Hank and Dianne deliver meals to the homeless community around Sunnymead Blvd. twice a week. They are making a small but meaningful difference in an otherwise marginalized population right here in our own city.

We partner with the city and individuals in any way possible to meet the needs of anyone who need help. Anything from food distribution to yard/park clean up Discovery cares about our city. We want to be a beacon of hope for anyone who needs it.
We have worked hard to build relationships with several local schools by providing things such as meals for the teachers, backpacks full of school supplies, promotion gifts, refreshments for awards assemblies, extra food during grab and go lunch, and much more.
Because Discovery cares about our community we plan to partner with our members to buy, package, and distribute over 100 Thanksgiving meals to those in need right here in Moreno Valley.
We are better together! And here at Discovery we truly believe that. That is why we have formed partnerships with local, national, and global organizations who have a further reach than the local church.
