Have you ever thought “Could I go on a mission trip?”
It may sound a little daunting. How and why do any of us do such a thing? First of all, God can put on our heart something he wants us to do and it’s hard to refuse! But going can still seem like a challenge. We have help! Don’t forget the words at the end of the book of Matthew, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” There are many opportunities for ministry both here and abroad. Please don’t hesitate to talk with our missionaries and ask questions about our mission trips and what they are like. The Missions Committee helps support both short- and long-term missionaries.
Mission Trip to Honduras June 29 - July 5, 2013 - Click here to see the plans for the trip. Contact Brien Koehler at email@example.com for additional information or to sign up for the mission trip. Mission Minded Men are especially needed for this trip. Our friend pictured below is counting on you!
There is a real need for laptops in Uganda. The orphanages need them for teaching purposes. Alison Barfoot and her organization - Eastern African Mission Force - are starting to set up some of their Muslim converts in small business service companies with typing and computer applications to help people who do not have access to computers in their businesses and lives. Laptops are preferred because they are transportable by our mission teams going to Uganda. If you have a laptop you can spare please drop it by the Church or contact: John Harrison at 822-0575.
SNOW, SNOW, SNOW! We had a great time with the children in St. Petersburg, Russia in January, 2010. They had an unusual snowfall (it snowed every day), and the orphans at the winter camp had no "toys" to use in the snow. So they asked if we could buy sleds and we did! We bought about 25 sleds using money from the Noisy Offerings! Thank you all for your support and prayers. It was exciting to be a part of this wonderful Christian Ministry and support our Russian brothers and sisters. - Renee and Greg Sethness
