Let’s be honest, foot washing is uncomfortable. But this ancient cleansing ritual once carried out by Jesus has real implications for how we think about serving today. It’s humbling to put our feet into someone’s hands and have them washed clean.

Our church’s local and global outreach ministries have always worked toward common goals to reach our city and the world with the love of Jesus. This spring, we’re bringing them together in a fresh way.

How does God want the church to serve immigrants, refugees and strangers?  How are they part of God’s plan to spread the gospel to all nations? Throughout the Old Testament and the New, we are taught to treat the foreigner well: to extend hospitality, offer compassion, and embrace equality as we love them as ourselves (Leviticus 19:33-34). In short, we make them our neighbors.
