Church & Society
Ministries of Faith in Action
“Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.”
It is our mission to make disciples of Jesus and to spread the word of God throughout our communities. Our Church & Society committee is dedicated to helping establish other groups within congregations that will help spread the word of God and better connect with the community.
