Outreach encompasses our efforts to serve locally in our community and everything that takes place globally beyond our immediate community. The purpose is to obey Jesus’ call to serve the least of these and to establish and strengthen the church of Jesus Christ globally. None of us have arrived but as we freely receive the transformational grace of God, we freely give it back to others. We believe that we have all been called to GO and SEND to see the good news of the gospel shared throughout the world.
Love Rockwood is our church-wide effort to make a major impact in one specific area of Gresham. Local Outreach connects you, your family or small group with the best ministry fit so you can reach out in His name. From serving the homeless a meal to helping a child learn to read; there’s a way for you to express God’s love in Rockwood.
Global Outreach is our extension of sharing the gospel to the ends of the earth. We strongly support our Global Outreach Staff who have accepted the call to full-time missionary work. We also strive to educate the church about the various needs of our global partners so we can pray specifically and give generously. We also provide opportunities to join God in what He is doing throughout the world through short-term mission teams.
