Reaching Kuna

Kuna Nazarene Church recently launched a capital campaign called “Reach Kuna,” casting vision to reach their community in a variety of outreach opportunities.  A gathering of about 80 people ate some great BBQ and heard stories of God’s transforming power to reach the lost and hurting in their community.  Please be in prayer for Pastor Eric Seaney and his staff and congregation as they intentionally and purposefully take steps to fulfill the Great Commission in their "Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria" (Acts 1:8).

Gooding and Boise Midtown

Last month the Intermountain District's newest church plant, Midtown Church in Boise, sent a small group to Gooding Desert Hills Nazarene to remodel their youth room. The group spent Friday cleaning and painting, then Saturday installing new flooring, adding more coats of paint, and remodeling with new furniture. On Sunday, Midtown’s small group was able to stay and worship with the congregation and celebrate the work that was completed. We love to see churches serving churches and our new church plant starting with a missional mindset!
