Global & National Missions
Going back for generations, our congregation has supported God’s work beyond our local community. We are proud to be a part of worthwhile mission projects in our nation and around the world.
Starting back in 1871 a group of young girls in our church formed an organization called the Working Band. These young ladies did odd jobs and service projects to raise money that was used to send girls in Africa to mission schools. Fourteen years later, in 1885, when our current sanctuary was being constructed, the Working Band earned enough to also pay for a small stained glass window that bears their name today.
Currently our church supports these Global and National Missions, as well as efforts to support people and places struck by natural disasters:
For many years at Christmas time our church has participated in filling shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Members of our congregation contribute items to fill the boxes, then travel to Minneapolis, MN to sort the thousands of shoe boxes to get them ready to ship to children around the world. For more information please visit the Samaritan’s Purse website.
Youth Mission Trips
Each year the High School and Middle School youth travel to other parts of the country to participate in serving others through projects activities. For more information please visit our Mission Trips page.
