Crossing Boundaries

June 30 & July 14
When Jesus told his followers to “Make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19), that included people from all economic classes, parts of town, education levels, and religious backgrounds. But we’re going to have trouble with this command of Jesus if we don’t look beyond our comfort zone. Jesus crosses all boundaries, and he calls us to cross boundaries along with him to meet the people he loves. Join us for Bible study at 9:15 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall as Pastor Phil Merten from Institutional Ministries helps us see how we can follow Jesus’ command and cross boundaries. (There is no Bible study or Sunday school on Sunday, July 7.)
