Building Lives of Mission Locally and Globally for the Glory of God
“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him “of whom they have never heard?” And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10:14-15
Monthly from October through May they provide the opportunity to serve others locally through hands-on projects in our community.
A team organizes and cooks and others from the congregation help serve a free community meal in Ephrata a few times a year.
