Going
You are here for a reason!
 
Jesus calls us to follow Him. At the end of His time on earth He commissions His disciples to go out into the world and make disciples of all nations. Part of faithfully serving our Lord meas faithfully sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with others. We are not talking about an elevator speech on heaven but putting in the time and effort to make disciples. This is another part of or Christian life that we need others to do well. 
We’d like to walk with you.
