“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you? The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me’.” Matt. 25:37-39 (NIV)

HANDS TO WORK ~ HEARTS TO GOD
“We are a welcoming church family, developing disciples who joyfully minister to others in the name of Christ.” ~ This is the Mission Statement of our Church ~
How are you Joyfully Ministering to others in the name of Christ ?
One way would be to join the Mission Committee as we strive to incorporate a variety of opportunities to minister to others in the name of Christ.
Yes, we have many established programs that we actively support with both manpower and finances, but we need new ideas to help incorporate a Mission Focus into the lives of our Church Family.
PLEASE Prayerfully consider joining the Mission Committee to help put our Faith into Action.
