Christianity in Action

Each person has a purpose and a place in mission.

2 Corinthians 9:12  "This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God."

Outreach Objective: To encourage each ministry of the church to engage members in mission actions to promote Christian relationships with those in need of support. The goal is to bless all individuals with a sense of purpose through this involvement.
