"Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:39, Mark 12:31

Jesus explained that anyone, everyone is our neighbor. We are called to care about not just people we know but all people everywhere. This is the second greatest commandment, one we strive to fulfill at ACP. Furthering this goal, ACP supports various missions in numerous ways. The Mission Outreach Committee (MOC) is a group of laypeople who manage the church's mission budget, increase awareness of needs and opportunities to help, and provide prayer, financial and in-person support to both local and international missions. Prayers are always needed. If you'd like to get involved in other ways or would like more information, please contact the Mission Outreach Committee.
