Missions

Chair: Caroline Amundson

The Missions Committee is a large part of the outreach of our congregation and is responsible to the church to organize, coordinate, and support the missions that the congregation engages in. These mission opportunity are to reach out to others who are less fortunate than we are and who may not know the love of God as we do.

Our mission is to keep the congregation informed of mission opportunities locally, statewide and globally in order to serve in Christ’s likeness to all people.
