Acts 1:8 “And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere – in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria and to the ends of the earth”
Taking the above scripture and applying it locally, you would think of Jerusalem and Judea as the immediate Metro East, O’Fallon, Belleville, Fairview Heights, Shiloh and Swansea. Then when you think of Samaria you would go a little further out into East St Louis, Collinsville, St. Louis and then further out into other states within our country. But Jesus also said “to the ends of the earth.” With that we reach out into various countries through the support of missionaries and also by sending missionaries.
Part of our mission at Skyline Church is to exist outside of our four walls. We believe that the church was never intended to simply gather together one day a week for worship. We gather to be refreshed and recharged so that we may be more effective in reaching our local community, our nation, and the world with the love of God.
Skyline has been very active in our Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and the ends of the earth by sending teams to serve in the following areas:
Florida – Assisting with rebuilding from a hurricane.
Tennessee – Helping to plant a church.
Honduras – Faith Home Orphanage, medical teams and building teams.
Local – Angel Tree.
Abroad – Operation Christmas Child.
Local – Socks for Love, Food Pantries.
Local – Teams at events to clean up trash, provide diaper changing booths, offering free water and more.
Florida – Lighthouse Family Retreat (assisting families with children going through cancer).
Local – R3 Organization (empower the youth of East St. Louis with job opportunities that equip them with the resources and skills necessary for success.)
Saipan – Support of missionaries.
India – Missionary support.
Albania / Macedonia – Missionaries support, team trip to help minister to the Muslim community.
And so much more! What are you waiting for? NOW is the time to sign up for missions and outreach.
