Outside These Walls


What does "Outside These Walls" mean?

What would happen in Campbellsville if the people of
Campbellsville Baptist Church reached out to the people
in Campbellsville this summer by doing ministry? 
Will you partner with your Sunday School Class,
your prayer group, a couple of families, or even
some people who are not a part of our church
and do 2 ministry projects this summer to go
Outside These Walls and love on Campbellsville?
