MISSION & OUTREACH
"COA -- Anchored in Mission"

“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
Christ Our Anchor’s Mission Committee is committed to serving the Lord as the body of Christ. The Mission Committee members and the congregation at large serve both local and global needs in a variety of ways. One of the greatest gifts that God has given to each of us is the ability to serve others in his name. COA believes in that and reaffirms it with every mission we undertake.
