Bringing People to the Grace of God and Jesus Christ our Savior
Matthew 28:1820: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."

The question, “Who is my neighbor?” is incredibly relevant. We can look at it from the perspective of a church, and very literally. Who are the people who live and work around us? Who are we called to reach out to? From where are people coming to be a part of our community? We can also look at the question individually. Who are the people who live and work around us and how are we positively affecting their lives in the name of our Messiah? This year as a church, we will be exploring this idea in several different ways. We will have more home-based Bible studies. You also might have heard the news that we will be starting a 4th service at 11:00am on Sundays over in Esther Hall. This service has 2 goals.
1. To provide a worship space with contemporary music, themes and styles and
2. To welcome families and un-churched community members to come and explore their faith.
All of our committees have plans to reach out into our community in new and exciting ways. All of these cannot happen, however, without every single one of us contemplating and becoming comfortable with both the question, “who is my neighbor?” And also “for whom is God calling ME to be a neighbor to?” “Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10:36, 37) May it we go and do likewise
Romans 10:14-15: But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’
Salvation in a continuing process in which we help each other work towards Christian perfection.

All of your gifts to the school are greatly appreciated by the staff and students! Thanks for your generosity.
Luke 24:46-47 Then He opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem"
John 20:21 Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you."
