We have been working as a Ministry Center for some time now. There are four language ministries here, but we are also partners in ministry.  The picture here is of the new sign we will be placing in front of the church.The panels below represent the four language ministries

The expression “rooted and grounded in love” comes from Colossians 1:17,

  • “And I pray that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ…”  

the tree logo comes from the idea that our roots are deep in the Love of God. It also suggests the verse in Psalm 1, which speaks of a tree planted by a stream of water.

  • “That person will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruit in season, and whose leafe does not wither — whatever they do prospers.”  Psalm 1:3
