Óne of the core values of the Christian church is ‘we have blessed in order to be a blessing’. Anyone with good news loves to share it. If an inventor discovers a cure for a disease, they will certainly share it so that many can be cured. So, as Christians, we have discovered the really good news of how we can spend an eternity with our loving Creator, and we want to share it so others too will know.
The Portland-Heywood Lutheran Church Mission statement is:
We live to know the love of Jesus to grow in the love of Jesus to share the love of Jesus. This is all about sharing the news.
We have several outreaches to the community, besides our regular worship services, that give us an opportunity to share the love of Jesus.
