“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” —Acts 1:8 (NLT)
Involvement in the church worldwide is an essential part of the DNA of our church. It always has been; it always will be. We invest financially in various aspects of worldwide ministry. Our church family is regularly represented by career missionaries and people participating in short-term trips to various places of the world. Several missionaries and people of international experience worship here. Almost 20% of our church budget goes for some kind of missions. The church supports 16 local ministries,23 missionaries, and five short-term mission groups. The Missionary Mailbag is distributed monthly in the CE foyer.
Wesleyan Kids for Missions WKFM, which meets during the school year on the 3rd Sunday of each month during the Sunday School hour, is an opportunity for our children (1st – 5th grades) to be introduced systematically to God’s work around the world. Through special guests—often college students or teams of students—the children are taught that being involved in helping people throughout the world know the truth and grace of Jesus Christ should be natural to their understanding of Christian faith.
