Current Mission Opportunities

Woman's Missionary Union (WMU) is a missions organization that has educated and involved generations upon generations in Christian missions. Their purpose—to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God—is accomplished through  age-level missions organizations, hands-on missions opportunities, and additional resources produced by WMU. They believe missions is a lifestyle and provide missions education resources for all age-levels. See more info at the following

Backpack Meal program

We continue to partner with Food For Thought into the 2018-2019 school year program! Meals are pre-packed and delivered to Bruner Middle School as part of our sponsorship, and we have successfully increased the number of meals provided as part of our Food For Thought partnership and thanks to our wonderful team of volunteers! If you are interested in helping, please contact the church (243-3163).


Crop Drop 2018 -- Thanks (!) to our volunteers for this event on Sat, Nov 17th: This annual event distributes last-from-the-field produce from all over the SE region to those who are in need locally. Thanks to the local organizers and for our 2018 volunteers who picked up and delivered over 400 bags of sweet potatoes to Opportunity Place and Catholic Charities.
