Let the Nations Be Glad (Ps. 67). That is our mandate as a Church: Inviting people from different cultures to discover the Joy we’ve found in knowing and loving King Jesus! MissionFest Week is a celebration of what God is doing to redeem people who have never heard about the Joy and peace we have found in Jesus! You will be blessed to know about previously unreached people groups who now have the opportunity to hear and experience Jesus because of our cross-cultural ministry partners! 

MISSIONFEST CELEBRATION
Saturday, November 17 from 6:30 – 8:30pm
The main event for our week-long emphasis on cross-cultural mission is the MissionFest Celebration. Saturday night we’ll have a fun dessert celebration sponsored by the ZEMA South Africa Team. We’ll hear stories of what God has done through our international Partners – Brad & Deb from West Africa as well as learn about opportunities cross-culturally right here in our backyard.

VISIT FROM OUR MISSION’S PARTNER  Brad and Deb
November 11-18 (see schedule below)
Brad & Deb from West Africa, as well as other cross-cultural partners will visit our group life and other ministry groups throughout the week so we discover more ways to take missional risks to reach the nations glocally (Globally and Locally)!
