Northway Church longs to be used as God’s Change Agents in the World. Our vision is grand and calls for virtually all members to join in! Consider responding to the following challenges:
Our goal is to see at least 80% of our able-bodied adults and students…
- Serve at Northway on a Ministry Team and…
- Participate in at least three service projects in our community and region each year and…
- Go on at least one short-term mission trip within the next three years.
We’ve also challenged our Small Groups to serve side by side in Service Projects at least three times each year.
It’s ambitious, but it’s absolutely what we believe God has called us to be!
