What is the difference between missions and outreach?
MISSIONS is the opportunity to answer the Great Commission to go out into the world and make disciples of Jesus Christ through serving and evangelizing to non-believers.
OUTREACH activities are opportunities to support, fellowship with and be examples of Christ to the community around us.
To become involved in missions and outreach activities watch the weekly Happenings email, the church Facebook page or sign up for the missions committee by contacting Pastor Ryan.
