OUTREACH

Reaching the world from Spring Lake Church means getting to know God's heart and being ready to jump into his adventure.

The Great Commission (Mt. 28:19, 20) says we are to go into “all the world” to preach the Gospel and make disciples. At Spring Lake Church, we believe that means our mission ministry is to include both a local and global (Glocal) expression.


Upcoming Outreach Events

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Be part of this worldwide effort to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need worldwide and to grow the Kingdom of God even in places where the Gospel has never been heard! Operation Christmas Child boxes and instruction brochures will be available at Connection Point in the Lobby. Packed boxes need to be returned to Spring Lake Church by Sunday, November 12.

On Mission is a class geared towards equipping Christ-followers to engage and evangelize the local and global community. You will hear about God’s plan to reach the world and be given tools to be effective in living out the Great Commission. This class is for everyone, but it is particularly helpful for those joining us in local and global mission projects.
