Acts 1:8 Project Proposal is based on Jesus’ command to be witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. The Acts 1:8 committee, consisting of Dennis Deck (member of the board), Michele Derheim (member of the missions committee), and Pastor Ron, has carefully and prayerfully selected mission projects to bless other ministries and advance God’s kingdom. Pastor Ron explained these to the church today, and on Sunday, May 16th, the congregation will be asked fro approve investing $30,000 towards these projects.
