2021 Faith Mission Giving Sermon
The History of Faith Mission Giving
“Across the Street, Across the Country, and Across the World”
That’s our motto. Every year, for many years, dozens of our members have done just this. Most would testify that these trips have been times of growth in faith, a sense of usefulness for the Kingdom, and seeing God work. Who wouldn’t want all of those things to happen in our walk with Christ?
Perhaps God has put a certain focus area on your heart (Haiti, Ukraine, Bulgaria, England). Or perhaps there is a ministry we have been involved with, but participating in it just hasn’t worked out yet. Or maybe it has just been a while. If you feel a calling let us know. We would love to talk with you!
