MISSIONS OUTREACH // a strong & growing part of Aldersgate
Aldersgate Mission Task Force has been reaching out to those in need since 1968. Just as Jesus commissioned his disciples in the first church, we are called to serve; first in our community, then to surrounding areas, and even to the "ends of the earth."

Sometime when people ask that question out of a life of plenty and privilege I sorta want to take a deep breath and say, "Because the tremendous Lord and Savior of us all, God's son and Mary's son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth commanded us to do it."
It is not a task, It is a privilege. Get on board and stop holding up the train - - we're going places with Him. And He also says, "Lo and I am with you always." If you really want to get in step with Jesus, go in His Name and work in His Name. Be in His Name, and in doing so you will become a much better and humble Christian than if you protect your faith and save it up to do "something really great." In that case, if you save it up, you've struck out.
