"You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." -Acts 1:18
Whether here in Auburn or on the other side of the planet, our mission is to help people discover Jesus and become more and more like him. That means supporting local schools and homeless shelters, regional college ministries, Bible translators, missionaries overseas, and sending people on missions today.
We send a short term missions team to Mexico every year, where we do a week of Bible lessons and awesome activities for kids, get some construction done for local families, and provide support and encouragement for Pastor Jorge and our sister church in Ajusco.
We are blessed to provide 100% of the support for two full-time missionaries who minister to children in government homes (orphanages) in Guatemala. Josias and Jacobo show the love of Christ and share the gospel to communities who are desperate for hope. We get to send a small team to support them almost every year and our church sponsors over 70 kids in those communities.
Patrick and Elizabeth Thompson serve with an organization called The Navigators, in Compton, California. They do outreach for youth and young adults, helping them find Jesus and carve a path for the future. Patrick grew up at Sierra Grace and we were blessed to host them earlier this summer.
