With help from several surrounding churches and businesses, Lighthouse Mission Group members of Altamonte Springs spent Sabbath morning, August 22, uplifting Christ to the 300 families who live in the Remington Inn and Suites community.

The mission group, which meets Sabbath afternoons in a storefront a few minutes away, is sponsored by Florida Living Church, Apopka. According to group leaders, the goal is to meet people where they are, and let them know there is a church that cares and loves them. That motivation takes members to the streets on Sabbath mornings.

At their most recent event, Lighthouse lay pastor and head elder Gabriel Cardona stopped amidst a flurry of outreach activity to say, “We’re really excited to be out here. As you can see, we’re just trying to serve the community and, more importantly, we’re just trying to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
