Commissions are groups who meet to serve different aspects of the church.

Hark, the voice of Jesus calling, “Who will go and work today? Fields are white and harvest waiting, Who will bear the sheaves away?” Loud and long the master calls you; Rich reward he offers free. Who will answer, gladly saying, “Here am I. Send me, send me”?

Our Redeemer is Reaching Out and Moving Forward!
