Raising Disciples for Jesus

“Plowing” – cultivating relationships with people
“Planting” – explaining the gospel to people
“Growing” – helping believers mature in Christ
“Harvesting” – helping believers share Christ with others


With our establishment as a mission Sunday school in 1857, we identify strongly with the disciple making aspect of Jesus’ words in Matthew 28:19-20.   Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
