What is the impact of "Mission of the Month"? 

Mission of the Month brings UNITY and FOCUS to serving, caring, and learning about Missions locally, nationally, and internationally. We desire for these opportunities to be an "on-ramp" for individuals and families alike, to join together and care for the needs of others. 

 

2019 Mission of the Months  

July: summer of service

Life Groups Serving Together

During the month of July, we are encouraging all of our Life Groups to take the work of the Gospel out into the local community and serve together! Serving together as a group, will not only help spread the Gospel to those you meet, but will build strong bonds within your group. You can find opportunities for serving at the link below. And be sure to share with us on social media where you served!
