International Missions & Ministries
Jesus said "You will be my witnesses – in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Reaching Out with hope and help for all who need Christ's love, is something every follower of Christ is called to do.
In Acts 1:8, Jesus charges us to be witnesses to his
love - in word and deed - locally ("in Jerusalem"), regionally ("in Judea and Samaria") and internationally ("to the ends of the earth").
We reach out not only as individuals and families, but together as a congregation.
Living Christ is known as a congregation Reaching Out - responding generously with support for individuals, missions and ministries locally, regionally and internationally, through prayer, financial support and
with volunteering. Some of our local support includes:
