Community Assistance Resources
Impact Church is actively involved in sharing the love of Christ in Festus and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately we are not in a position to be able to help everyone in need of financial assistance. We focus our help in this manner to members and regular attenders of the church. We offer prayers, guidance and advice to others in need. Below is a list of organizations who focus on helping with specific areas of need.
Please let us know if there is any other way we can display God's love to you.
