  • become aware that God wants everyone to know of His love
  • move from a focus on self to a focus on others
  • apply Bible thoughts to their lives as they learn to pray, give, and help others.
  • and their families learn of ways to give their time, talents, and money

Missions Area: Boston, Massachusetts

Newton, Massachusetts is a city of 86,000 people, and is near Boston. Most people have little interest in God or church. Christ Community Church is one of only a few churches in town that preach salvation through Christ.

 Christ Community Church shows Jesus’ love through Bible studies at a local college and an assisted living facility, tutoring for children who are victims of domestic violence, and cleaning the city on Newton Serves Day.
