"And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:18-20
Here at Cedar Creek, we know that Jesus' command to make disciples applies to us. To be Christian implies being "on mission". We believe that the saving message of Jesus Christ needs to be heard by those across the street as well as those around the world.
There are many different opportunities to be involved in missions at Cedar Creek. Check out the links below for more information on how you can be involved in sharing the message of Christ.
Jesus called us to love and serve our neighbors. Outreach is servant-focused. We seek to welcome and extend ourselves to those in our community, especially those who enter our service(s). It is our goal to build relationships with those in our community with the hope of bringing them to salvation in Jesus Christ. We desire to make all first-time guests and members feel welcome. This includes but is not limited to warm greetings, information about church details and activities, and meeting all needs of guests, visitors, and members.
One of our biggest outreach ministries is Campus Life. Campus Life is an after-school program that ministers to students at Fern Creek High School. At Campus Life, we play games, we eat food, we build relationships with students, and we share with them about the hope of Jesus Christ in the gospel!
Just as the first churches supported one another to advance the gospel, so we seek to advance the gospel through short-term missions. Specifically, we send teams twice a year to South Asia to deliver the gospel to unreached people groups. We also intentionally raise money to support missions through the Annie Armstrong, Leonard Hood, and Lottie Moon offerings.
Our next trip will be Thursday, November 17th and we will leave the church at 4:30pm. the special items needed this month are bathroom cleaning supplies and laundry detergent. Please also consider donating a store-bought dessert. Please leave your donations in the Esther Sunday School classroom any time before we depart. Or better yet--come and ride with us in the church van!
