One in Ministry to the Community

Cannon is committed to providing opportunities for small groups and individuals to serve our community.  They vary according to the dates and times you can serve, the level of commitment required, and the type of service.  We will continue to identify new ways to serve in an effort to best match Cannon’s resources and availability with community needs.  Below you will find some of the current opportunities available if you or your small group is interested in serving in our community.
