Missions and Outreach



Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry…or thirsty… or a stranger…or naked…or sick or visited you in prison?”
Matthew 25:37-39 excerpts

The Garden of Fellowship

The excitement and enthusiasm for the vegetable garden project continues. The Sweet Potato harvest has taken place and once again we were blessed with a wonderful bounty!


We ask that you continue to keep The Garden of Fellowship in your
prayers…that it may be a blessing to the community in need and to those willing to
work and serve.

Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box


We had a great time filling our shoe boxes with goodies!


Operation Christmas Child is a project of the international relief organization. Samaritan's Purse. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoe boxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease; and to children on Native American reservations in the U.S. 
Please contact the church office for more information.
