“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit...” - Matthew 28:19
To serve is to share God's love. How might you serve in our church, our community, and your neighborhood to share Jesus' love to others? How can you share what God is doing in your life? How will you take the good news into the community? Every church member is encouraged to get involved in at least one mission activity impacting our neighborhood.
