One Body…Many Projects…On Mission!
SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS
Each spring and fall for the past six years, we have joined together as a church in going out into the community and sharing the love of Jesus by serving others in his name. These On the Move projects demonstrate that we are a church that is for the community—that in any and every way we can bless our community for the name and glory of Jesus, we’re in—we’re all for it! Often while working on these projects God will open up opportunities for us to pray with someone, to share our faith story or to invite others to worship with us.
From April 13 to 22, we will work together on nine different service projects. This year, signing up for On the Move is going electronic. Beginning March 25, you will have the opportunity to sign up on this web-page and on our mobile app. If you need assistance signing up, we will have people ready to assist in the Connection Point each Sunday starting March 25.
We are asking everyone to sign up initially for only one project. This will ensure an ample opportunity for our Easter guests to sign up for a project. One of the reasons we emphasize participation in On the Move is because of how it serves as on the job training for us in learning to be a light for Jesus in our daily lives. Our approach to these projects is the way we need to approach each day in looking for ways to share the love of Jesus in word and deed. Please pick out a project and join in as together we represent the love and compassion of Jesus to our community.
