Global and National Mission
God calls us to care for others: all people. Therefore our faith calls us into action beyond the walls of our congregation. The Global & National Ministries Committee is BSPC’s place to interpret our congregation’s response to God’s call to care for others outside of our congregation and beyond Central Ohio.
