• Take the Gospel of Christ to the Community

    by Tom Hicks on March 29, 2011

    Beginning in April, there will be an important change in our GRACE outreach ministry. This evangelism ministry has been in place since 2007 and has served our community and our church well.  Four outreach teams go out every week to follow up with those who have visited Morningview and to make evangelistic contact with families that are new to the community.

    G.R.A.C.E. teams will meet on Sundays at the church at 3:30 pm and will return by 5:00 pm in time for M.I.T.  Each team will go out into the community once each month.  Share the gospel of Jesus Christ and pray about your involvement in this great ministry opportunity. Call the church or look for sign-ups coming in the following weeks during Sunday morning service.
