Missions Outreach and Service Ministries are opportunities to bring the Good News of Christ and the ministries we support to the people of our community and to the world. There are also opportunities to serve the church and the community through hands-on and financial support. These ministries help make the needs of the poor, hungry, and disadvantaged real to us, and encourage us to action.
Missions Outreach & Service
The Seeds Program
The Missions Committee is excited to announce a new ministry: The Seeds Program. This program makes seed funds available for congregation members to start new local mission projects that encourage vulnerable and marginalized persons and promote their well-being. We have been challenged to dream big, and this is one of the ways we do so. If you have a vision for a new local mission outreach, you can apply for seeds funding—grants of up to $500 are available. Please click here to learn more. You can download the application here.
Missions Collection Box
Our Missions Collection Box, located in the vestibule by the church's front doors, is where we've been able to help local agencies the most during the pandemic. Every month we sponsor a different group in our area who is in need of specific items. We might find it necessary to change items/an agency to comply with their restrictions during the pandemic. Please see information below
for the current month's missions collections.
The Missions Box collection for April is for items that can be used for our day of helping in our community with Rebuilding Together. You can find a list of needed items by clicking here to go to the Harvester - look on page 4!
Rebuilding Together Work Day is Saturday, April 24
Help is needed in the form of as many volunteers as can come out to help clear out yard debris on almost 3 acres of land. This is all outside work. The shifts are three hours long: 9 am to noon and 1-4 pm.
If you are able to help to help at either shift on Saturday, April 24, please sign up here. Please also contact Janice Mitchell directly through email so she knows you're coming. She can give you more instructions and what you are needed to bring (masks, work gloves, etc.).
