NEAR & FAR

MISSION EMPHASIS 2017

Every fall, we devote two weeks to considering God's call upon us to be participants in his mission. This year's theme is "Near and Far." Our goal in these weeks is to grow in embracing our responsibility to the gospel that simultaneously pushes us deeper into our neighborhoods in the community while also pushing us wider into the nations around the world.

Mission Far

Ephesians

October 15, 2017

Guest Speaker: Luke H.


The book of Ephesians provides us with an insightful glimpse into what it means to be connected to God's mission to the ends of the earth. In this sermon, we mine the entire book of Ephesians to discover the scope of mission far, the means of mission far, and the call of mission far.


Mission Near

Jeremiah 29:1-7

Pastor Drew Humphrey


Mission is not just something that happens on the other side of the world. It’s something that happens in the everyday rhythms and routines of the neighborhoods and cities where we live. How do we as Christians engage in that mission? One of the most important ways we do that is by adopting an exilic mindset that informs the shape of our presence in our community.
