Castleton firmly believes in actively supporting ministry apart from our local church family – locally, nationally, and internationally. When people drive past our church property, we want them to say “I don’t know what we would do if that church wasn’t in our neighborhood.”
We have made a firm commitment to give a portion of our annual income to this purpose. We currently support ministries in Indianapolis, the U.S., Europe, Southeast Asia, New Zealand, and Africa.
Monthly Donation Drives:
