Global Awareness Week 2020

Global Awareness Week 2020

Global Awareness Week (GAW) begins on Sunday, November 15th. This year’s theme is Building Gospel Bridges. In Matthew 5:9, Jesus doesn’t mince words. “God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called children of God.” Jesus invites us to work for peace, to be a community of faith that builds gospel bridges with our neighbors near and far. Throughout this week we will be turning our attention beyond our local experience and catching a greater glimpse of how God is still sovereignly at work in the world, in the midst of a global pandemic. Below are some ways you can participate in this special week.

Guest Speaker Nikki Toyama-Szeto

During our worship services on November 15 we’ll hear from guest preacher Nikki Toyama-Szeto, Executive Director of Christians for Social Action. You can join us onsite or watch live online.
