Life on Mission: Serving Side By Side


RUMC's 13th Annual Global Impact Celebration

What is Life on Mission: Serving Side By Side?

Life on Mission: Serving Side By Side is the theme of RUMC's 13thth annual Global Impact Celebration. This is a four-day, church-wide event packed with opportunities for you and your family to engage in the missional movement of RUMC. Several local ministry partners and global missionaries will be onsite to share the stories of Roswell and our world. There will be opportunities to assemble snack packs for students served by Action Ministries, have a Saturdays in the Park, pack a crate to send to Venezuela, and learn about current issues impacting God's people.

This year, we will be taking a deeper look at the ways we can "serve side by side" to engage and encounter Christ. Relationships are being developed, lives are being transformed, restored and made whole, right here in Roswell and around the world. Come with open ears and open hearts as to how God might be calling you into living Life on Mission by serving your neighbor!
