Missions and Service

Missions and Service

As a team, it is our endeavor to witness to others, to live together in harmony and peace, and to practice mercy in Christ Jesus. 

These phrases—Witness, Life Together and Mercy illustrate how the church works together to proclaim the Gospel, and to provide for our brothers and sisters in Christ in our various congregations, in neighboring communities, and throughout the world.   In all that we do, Christ is at the center, leading us, sustaining us, and keeping us focused. 


We will reach out to the churched and un-churched to proclaim the Good News, and we will provide congregation members the opportunity to become involved in evangelism, outreach and in-reach, and in the sharing of our faith.

“For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree.”  – 1 John 5:7-8

Life Together: 

We will promote a Christ centered church and provide our congregation members the opportunity to serve one another. 

“God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” – 1 Corinthians 1:9


We will use our time, talents and treasures to serve others who are less fortunate, who have fallen on hard times or are being tested. We will provide our congregation with many opportunities to serve and minister to others. 

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:45
