Stepping Beyond the Comfort Zone

If we are not careful, life’s everyday routine can make us numb to God’s presence and deaf to God’s call. It is important to step beyond our comfort zones every day, even if only in small ways, so that we may be open to receiving God’s grace, and better equipped to share it with those in need.

This week, 23 FirstChurch members are traveling well beyond comfort to Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica where we will bridge different cultures and see the global church at work. This experience will expand our perspective, challenge us in new ways, and fortify our sacred connection to one another. We will experience more intensely and reflect more intentionally this week.

Your contribution to the Rise Fund directly benefits our partner in ministry, missionary Ray Zirkel and the Costa Rica Methodist Church. Thank you for your prayers and support as we go forth in the name of God.
