“We go because He came”
During the Christmas Season, we pause to remember the reason why missions exist. We go because He first came to us. This Christmas, we invite you to wonder anew at the mystery of the Incarnation and to respond by sharing the Good News of Immanuel, God with us. If you have some free time over the holidays, consider joining us or one of our Ministry Partners at the following events where we might share the Good News in our city. No free time? Consider helping our Ministry Partners by gifting them some much-needed items.
