What does it mean to be On Mission @ Cottonwood creek?
Being On Mission @ Cottonwood is sharing Jesus through local, national and international missions; by equipping the people of God to serve and to care for those who are in need.
The Bible is clear as it speaks to those who are fully devoted followers of Jesus by commanding us to care for the least of these (Matthew 25:45), to serve those in need (Matthew 20:28) and to reach those who do not know Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20).
Being On Mission @ Cottonwood is a lifestyle, not an event! Being On Mission @ Cottonwood is serving in one of our many ministries at church (Children's, Youth, Worship, Parking Team and more), but it could also be going on a mission trip to Kenya. Being On Mission @ Cottonwood is caring for your neighbors around the corner. Additionally, it can also be caring for the poverty children in a third world country. Being On Mission @ Cottonwood is being a representative, an AMBASSADOR, for Christ in how you live, love and care for people.
“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’”
