Change, Change, Change! It is popular in our culture, in our government, and in our own lives to strive for change. In the Gathering, we like to call this impacting lives for eternity, with a Kingdom purpose. It is my hope as a body and through other local bodies and ministries that we can help equip you, by giving you opportunities to serve. We aren't simply going places to "check off" our good deed box for the year, but we desire to see hearts turned to the Father through actions of serving Him with love by serving others. We have several opportunities to serve locally and globally. This year we hope to serve the poor and needy in our neighborhoods locally and not neglecting the need to go abroad and serve those in physical need and spiritual need. Some trips are serving the needs of the broken, working with children, reaching out to the lost, sharing the gospel to people for the first time, prayer walking, encouraging the local church, simply said...serving others as Christ served us. Not only do we get to go and serve, but in it God reveals a great deal to us, awakening our hearts and allowing our eyes to see the bigger picture of the calling He has on your life.
We partner with the River Community Church for many of our mission trips. As of June 2015 we have taken teams to NewYork City, SanDiego, Anchorage, Memphis, Missoula MT, Cuba, Guatemala, and Central Asia.
The remainder of the year we have Guatemala, NewYork, Maine, and Central Asia scheduled.
