Based on the verse in John 15:5 – we as ‘Sarigim’ (Hebrew for ‘branches’) have a strong desire to be carriers of God’s blessing and immense goods to our surroundings.

We want to grow in our faith, and become more aware of the needs in our midst. We believe that the way for us to serve is to connect with others to meet those needs, helping God’s kingdom ‘branch out’.
