Respond to the great commission
On World Missions Sunday, February 27, part of the service included dedicating ourselves to the Lord's work around the world by committing to pray, give, and/or go. Remember, at Second the World Missions budget is separate from the general budget of the church, supported exclusively by your giving designated for world missions. Use the button below to pledge online. There will also be pledge envelopes in the pew racks on Sunday, March 6.
Pray for our world missions partners
We support more than 60 missionaries in 7 strategic regions of the world. Please commit to faithfully praying for them and those they serve. Printed prayer books are available around the church.
In addition, you may sign up to receive daily or weekly missionary prayer requests via text or email.

Their church plant was recently turned over to a local pastor, and they look forward to starting a new church plant later this year in another unreached area called Xingang.
