The Acts 1:8 Challenge
Sequoia has accepted the "challenge" from the Lord in Matthew 28:18-19 to go into all the world and make disciples. Jesus commands us to "be witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Sequoia is obeying this command with a balanced approach to missions. We see our "Jerusalem as Manteca, where we live. We see our "Judea" as California and our "Samaria" as the United States, Canada and Mexico. We interpret the "Ends of the earth" in this passage as international missions.
Our ministries in Manteca include
- CamPossible is Sequoia sending youth and kids to camp at Jenness Park every summer
- Hope Family Shelter is an apartment giving hope to homeless families in Manteca
- Raymus House is a shelter for single moms in need
- Love, Inc. is a ministry giving food, clothing, and furniture for those in need in Manteca
- The Living Nativity is Sequoia's Christmas gift to the community sharing the story of Christ
- Go projects in Manteca which are service projects to help the community
Our ministries in California include
Our ministries in our nation, Canada, and Mexico
- Sequoia sends a team every year usually in July to help an orphanage and church in LaMision, Mexico.

Come join us as we obey the Lord in the Great Commission
