As the word of God continues to lead, direct, motivate and empower us, the Outreach Ministry at First United boldly takes a stance to reach the lost at any cost. Our goal in doing so is to address the spiritual, as well as the physical needs of people. In Mark 8:1-9, the scripture showed where the Lord not only ministered to the people, but also fed them. The latter, has influenced First United to initiate food distribution to members of its congregation, as well as the community.
The mission of the Outreach Ministry at First United is to participate in field service in an effort to expound the word of God to individuals in the community and inform them regarding the good news of salvation. Also, to aid in fulfilling the great commission to “go” (Matthew 28:19) and teach the gospel to all nations.
We are determined to develop a zeal for God that will empower us to ardently inform those who are lost, about the “Son of God,” as Saul (also known as Paul) did, beginning in the book of Acts 9:20. Also, to assure individuals of the“rest,” promised to them in the book of Matthew 11:28, which states “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
If you are looking for hope, or searching for a church home where you can feel a sense of belonging and comfort, First United is here to serve you; thus, we entreat you to come. Today, if you hear the voice of the Lord, “harden not your hearts” (Hebrew 4:7); give Jesus a chance in your life.
