Reach OUT to the broken and lost world through participating in one of our Mission Trips or Quarterly Opportunities.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS YOUTH MISSION TRIP
July 10-15. Pray for our youth mission team as they work with churches in Roslyndale, Charlestown, and Fenway. They will help with community events such as movie nights & block parties, get involved in small groups, and work with housing developments. They will also help the church in Charlestown with construction. They will be studying Acts 16, which teaches the importance of diversity and unity within the church. They hope to learn to be an Acts 16 church in everyday life.

MATTHEWS ALIVE
