“Keep open house; be generous with your lives.”
(Matthew 5: 16, The Message)
EVERY DAY YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE in someone’s life through Mission & Service. Because you are generous
with your hope and with your giving, people are
• drawn into the circle of community
• strengthened in their work for peace and justice
Our generosity with both the local church and Mission & Service enables us to carry the presence of God with love
and hope into the world. What we do together through Mission & Service, none of us could achieve alone. Thank you
for your part in this hope-fulfilling story.
