MATTHEW 28:18-20


Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."


PURPOSE


As Jesus followers, we believe it is important to bring transformation by loving and serving God's people - where ever they are. We partner with International, domestic and local agencies and work directly with families, schools, businesses, parks, townships, and other ministry organizations. Opportunities to serve others are all around us: across the world, across the state across the city and/or the street. Service is done through our LifeGroups, small groups, families, and individuals.

Go partners of the month

  • Mighty Mini missionaries

    This month is special in that we are honoring the children of our missionaries serving in places like Eastern Europe, Barbados and South America.  These ten children, ranging in ages from infant to teenager.  They learn different languages and customs.  They go to school in a foreign language, learn to eat different foods and to be away from Grand parents and other extended families.  Yet they also respond to the call to let their friends and classmates learn about Jesus.

outreach events

Discover provides two church-wide community outreach days each year, in the spring and the fall. Serving in multiple venues brings awareness to the entire church of the need and responsibility to serve others. It also creates a lot of excitement. We have served people in local businesses, city parks, fire and police departments, schools, hospitals, and homes of the elderly and developmentally disabled. We also hand out free items at street corners,  community programs and sporting events; giving away things such as water, pop, sunscreen, snacks etc.


We want to continue to serve people in many different ways with the sole purpose of showing God's love in a practical simple way.
