Love Beyond

Love Beyond: Taking the love of Christ beyond our walls and into our community

This year Love Beyond is taking on what Acts 1:8 asks of us to do. We are providing various ways for our church to be involved in missions leading up to the Christmas season locally, in our state, and globally! You have the opportunity to pray, give, and serve, or do all three. We are providing simple and practical ways for you and your family to give back to our community. This year age and physical location won’t hold you back from loving beyond our walls!

For additional information or questions please contact Bill Pennington.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Acts 1:8
