Our Church is pleased to support CBF Global Missions in moments like these where bearing witness to Jesus Christ takes place through a taste of home. "Beloved Community at our Persian Ministry looks like members preparing food, serving it and cleaning up. Although our members often struggle financially, this is how they welcome others in appreciation for what God has done for them. This is how they use their gifts in the Beloved Community. If you have lived in another country, you know how significant it is when you have a taste of home. This is what the Persian Ministry provides. Recently, one whom we welcomed expressed his appreciation for Beloved Community by outlining in great detail his future plan to create a Welcome Home Ministry for those who will come in the future.
