Serve Beyond the Bay Area

Los Altos United Methodist Church sponsors a variety of missions that take church members, friends and guests all over the world to follow in Jesus’ footsteps, bringing the message of love with open arms to others. Often in the course of a mission trip, not only are the people to whom the mission is directed moved by the love of Christ seen in the eyes of the participants, but the participants themselves are awakened to the power of faith in action. Read first-hand testimonies from current and past mission trips on our blog.
