living simply in March

 and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem,
and in all Judea and Samaria,
and even to the remotest part of the earth.

Acts 1:8

One of the things we looked for in a church when we moved here, was one with a focus on  missions. We are very happy that the fellowship we found does!

Because they focus on missions, they ask that their members give, and serve, and train, with mission mindedness.

They "do" missions locally with a food bank, and they feed the poor. That is our Jerusalem.
They "do" missions in nearby Jacksonville with Baptist children's home, and a ministry to refugees in partnership with World Relief. That is our Judea and Samaria.
They "do" missions in Africa in hopes of reaching people groups who have never heard the good news of Jesus. That is the remotest part of the earth.

In celebration of mission mindedness, our church has asked that during the month of March,

We live simply,
so that others may simply live.

Won't you join us?
