We are all called by Jesus to reach out and care for the needs of those around us. There are several times in Scripture where Jesus tells His followers to become missionaries. In Mark 16:15, He tells us, Go into all the world and preach the Good News to all creation. In Matthew 28:19, Therefore go and make disciples of all nations. In Matthew 25:40, ...whatever you did to the least of these My brothers and sisters, you did to Me.
The Missions and Outreach Committee facilitates opportunities for church members to learn about missions and serve throughout the year in various activities—close to home and around the globe. Whether you are interested in contacting one of the many missionaries we have partnered, or in finding opportunities to become involved, Missions and Outreach is the place to start.
