- What We Do
In Acts 1:8, Jesus tells his disciples to be his witnesses in “Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” But that doesn’t mean to go just “everywhere.” Jesus’ command paints a portrait of what mission looks like in our lives.

Typically, many churches pray that God will use this week to draw people in so we can share with them the good news of God’s grace and salvation.
But this year, the church has left the building. And with this unexpected change, each of us has an opportunity to share the good news through our words and actions right where we are living.
