"He must be greater, I must become less." - John 3:30
In a nutshell, this is our mission prayer at Martha Bowman United Methodist Church. As we look out into a broken world, it is more than just helping, it is more than just feeding, and it is more than just kindness: How can we become less of ourselves, so that Jesus can become greater in our world?
Theme for 2017: Kids - From the Inside Out
"Love the hurting, heal the wounded, help the hopeful - one kid at a time"
