"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.
Financial support for the Aguilars comes donations given to our church, designated for Guatemala.
Our church has been supporting families from Rock Creek Elementary School for almost 25 years, providing after-school tutoring, games, and Bible lessons.
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.
Jeremy and Anne joined Global Fellowship as home office staff in July 2014. They began directing mobilization (recruiting of new missionaries) and the training (pre-field as well as ongoing) of all GF missionaries around the world. Jeremy and Anne grew up at Sierra Grace.
Jason and Leslie joined Wycliffe in 2018 and serve the GTIS department in Web Development, supporting Wycliffe’s vision of the Bible being translated into every language that needs it by 2025.
Will you prayerfully consider partnering with their Wycliffe ministry through prayer and/or financial giving? Bible translation is a huge task, but together we can make it live for all peoples in their heart language!
The Vasquez Family
Jorge, his wife Matty, and their 5 children have been serving God by b ringing the gospel to the people of Ajusco, Mexico and the surrounding migrant farms for many years. They have also been faithfully partnering with SGF youth ministries for an annual Easter-week short term mission trip.
Raymond and Breanna have been living and serving in the southern Bohemia region of the Czech Republic, with their three children, since 2013. Less than 1% of the CR are evangelical Christians, more than 70% are atheist, and there are so few churches you’d have trouble finding one even if you were trying. The Lengtats were members of Sierra Grace before feeling called to overseas missions and we’re thrilled to support them!
Over the last several years, our very own Lisbeth Piedrasanta has been ministering to the families who live under a bridge in Guatemala. We call it the “Bridge Ministry.” So far, God has allowed her to help 70 families find shelter, but more are in need. Every family hears the gospel and many are being discipled. Financial support for Lisbeth comes from gifts designated for the Bridge Ministry given to our church.
In 2012, Jon and Rebecca Hallsted launched Healthbridge Global out of a desire to minister to people’s needs, starting with their health. Their mission is to connect the beauty of healthcare to the hope of the gospel.
