Come hear about how God is working in Papua New Guinea at the Hatton Luncheon on September 30 at noon (Sugar Grove Campus).
We have 5 members of our church running in the Chicago Marathon on October 7. They will be running to raise funds for Team World Vision
The purpose of the fundraising is to help provide life-changing clean water to children and communities in Africa. World Vision's statistics tell us "Nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die every day from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. But we believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes."
Each of our runners has their own fundraising page from World Vision. Click on the links below to donate and support this wonderful cause.
Missions is not just something we pray for in distant lands. It is something we actively engage in on a regular basis.
Whether it’s our Global Action Teams engaging with partner ministries on the other side of the planet, or the Local Action Teams engaging in reaching our neighbors, and nearby cities, Short Term Action Teams are a critical part of our Acts 1:8 strategy. As Jesus was ascending into heaven, He commanded his disciples to be witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. We want to follow that pattern ourselves. Starting close to home, and letting the ripple-effect of our faith spread.
As a church, we partner with missionaries and organizations who desire to make their life's work serving the Lord and proclaiming His work on the cross. We deeply value each person and organization we work with, and continue to be amazed with how God works locally and internationally. By forming genuine relationships with our long term missionaries, we desire to bring about mutual learning and a more meaningful partnership.
