Mission 1:8

Impacting Our Local Community 

On Saturday, March 17 we want to impact our local community in an incredible way. Mission 1:8 is a service day where we want to mobilize our membership to serve our local community by completing several service projects within a 10 mile radius of our church.

Mission 1:8 is based on Acts 1:8

“ but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
