Texas Mission Trip - December
There is great conversation about a first mission team making the trip to Ingleside, TX, to the United Methodist Church in that community, to help with Hurricane Harvey recovery! At this time, we are considering the second week in December, but nothing has been finalized. If you are interested or would like more information, contact the Church Office: email@example.com.
Financial Peace University - Coming in January!
If you are interested to hear more about this or if you know about how life-changing this course is and want to attend, please let us know! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are invited to come this Sunday evening to Grand View and enjoy fellowship, information, and a taste of the kinds of food eaten in Nigeria! We are starting to put the pieces together for another mission trip. Is God calling you or nudging you to make this life-changing journey? Or, is God nudging you to be more actively involved in this transformative mission, even if you never make the actual trip to Nigeria? We invite and encourage more people to be a part of this.
