Here, Near & Far
with the Good News of Jesus
“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” – Acts 1:8
Hayward Wesleyan Church exists to connect every person to Jesus. As part of that calling, we’ve resolved to get behind the following mission partners with financial support they can count on in 2024. Our target budget is $90,200 to help these amazing brothers and sisters bring the good news of the gospel to people here, near, and far!
To receive regular updates from any of these ministries, contact the church office at email@example.com.
