Augusta GA Mission Event to Start the Year

The Trinity Outreach Celebration is almost here.  It's always interesting to see if others will get as excited, and involved, in an event as you hope, plan, and pray for.  I'd call this year's annual mission experience a "once in a decade" opportunity as we bring in national mission leaders, have seminars on a range of topics, and offer "hands on" mission service for all ages.  
Read the theme verses of our Trinity Outreach Celebration 2013 in 2 Corinthians 5:17-20. Through the TOC we’ll be learning more about what it means to be an ambassador for Christ and how we can best share the message of reconciliation in word and deed.  Please share this with others and encourage attendance as we join together in mission.  We’ll have other United Methodists from throughout GA & SC joining us, so be sure to sign up early to reserve your seat as many of the activities have limited seating available.  Pray for what will happen in us and through us as we continue to follow Christ in mission locally, nationally, and internationally through 2013 and 2014.  All of the information below, plus registration, is available online at or by calling the church mission office at 706-738-8822 ext. 50.
