Love Is the Agenda

Planting Seeds: Essentials for Growth

Wednesday, November 8 through Sunday, November 19

Love Is the Agenda

Here at Autumn Ridge Church, we have been blessed by a deep history of engaging local and global partners in our community and the world. The people and ministries we are connected to speak to the powerful work God is doing beyond our church walls.

Every fall, we set aside a few weeks to focus on the work that our missions partners are doing locally and globally.

We call this Love is the Agenda

Love is the Agenda was designed with this purpose: teach how God has called each of us to be missionaries, celebrate the work of our supported missionaries and partners, give us a deeper understanding of the work being done by indigenous leaders around the globe, and present an opportunity for all of us to find ways to make love our agenda every day.
