Community Outreach

Community OutreachpgOur faith directs us to engage the world around us. In addition to our internal ministries and mission work, Drayton Avenue is the home or meeting place for a number of religious, aid, service and educational organizations. Drayton Avenue is also actively involved in promoting causes that are important to our community and consistent with our faith.
