We want to see every person within our reach experience the transforming love of God and join His work of transforming others!
Thunder Mountain Church invests ALL its time, talents, and treasures to grow people to know, love, and serve Jesus locally and around the world. We serve our local community by demonstrating the love of Jesus in practical and meaningful ways by being a church that GIVES, and LOVES indiscriminately.
The Bible instructs us to love our neighbors (Matthew 12:31
), and to share the love of Jesus everywhere (Matthew 28:19). At Thunder Mountain we do this in large part through our outreach efforts, accomplished in two ways: through strategic partnerships, and local service and ministry projects.
Life Care Center
Life Care Center is a nursing home in Sierra Vista that serves inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. Volunteers from Thunder Mountain have identified the need for emotional and spiritual support for the staff and residents through practical assistance. For those who have a heart for the elderly and building relationships, this is a great way to serve the community.
Adapted from Thunder Mountain’s annual Project: Serve event, we have identified needs in the Golden Acres community and throughout Sierra Vista assisting elderly and other individuals with manual labor projects on their property. This often includes yard work, minor construction projects, and some heavy lifting duties. This is a great opportunity for men or women with “handy-man” skills and equipment.
Thunder Mountain participates in various season outreach ministries around the holidays. One opportunity is Operation Christmas Child with Samaritan’s Purse, a local Thanks Giving Basket delivery, and more to come. If you desire to serve behind the scenes or more directly to accomplish the goals of these ministries, this is a great opportunity.
Prison Bible Correspondence Ministry
The Salvation Army Correctional Services Department serves inmates of various institutions through Bible coursework. This is a great opportunity to pray for and encourage incarcerated students by grading homework every other Monday evening at The Salvation Army or from your home. Training and answer keys are provided so this is a great option for people who know the Bible and who don’t.

We don’t want to just send money to the causes we support. We want to develop meaningful relationships with the critical ministries in our local and global communities. When these community ministries hurt, we want to feel it. When they win, we want to celebrate with them. Learn more about all of our Strategic Partnerships by clicking the button below.
Several of our Strategic Partners give us regular updates on the progress of their ministry efforts or current needs. We also love to share results of our seasonal outreach ministries. Learn more about that progress by clicking the button below.
