Radical Sending

Have you wondered why we end our worship service by sending forth with "Let us go into the world in peace to love and serve the Lord"? Jesus didn't just call people to come, he called them to be sent. Join us as we engage a Church Next video " Radical Sending " and reflect together how St. Francis can live out our mission together as we come together and move out into the world.
