Missions are those activities in evangelism that take place away from our home base. Common Ground Church has worked with sister Christian & Missionary Alliance (CMA) churches in Cuidad Juarez, Mexico, helping to build on to the Bible Institute in Juarez and to be a support to the CMA churches there. God has done some amazing things through this partnership! We also have Great Commission Sundays at Common Ground, which are opportunities to hear from guest CMA missionaries about what is happening in their particular mission fields. We stay in contact with a number of CMA missionaries regularly. Visit the Missions bulletin board at Common Ground to see some of their updates.
Outreach refers to those activities in evangelism that reach out here at home to our friends, family, neighbors and community. Our desire is to train workers that will become leaders that will go into the harvest of Lake Elmo and the surrounding communities we serve and make an impact for the gospel of Jesus Christ where we live.
