2017 Mission Trips Listing

At Faith, we take Jesus’ call to carry His compassion and hope to the world seriously. Jesus was so committed to caring for the poor, the broken, the lost and alone, the hopeless…and we are entirely convinced that He calls His Church to make that same commitment. We want to be people who seek the peace of our city, care for the hurting, and actively show that WE ARE FOR our community, our country, and our world. And we want you to join us.

Whether you grew up in church or this is your first experience checking one out, if you want to be a part of impacting our communities through service and compassion, then we have a place for you.

Environmental

• Our garden ministry serves our Faith community by beautifying our grounds, preventing water runoff that pollutes our streams and serves as an outdoor classroom for the CDC. It also allows for outdoor fellowship in the open field. The vegetable garden is an opportunity to plant, serve and help grow fresh healthy produce for the Food Pantry Ministry, Salvation Army lunch prep ministry. This ministry will continue to expand as God directs. Opportunites to serve include hoeing, weeding,  planting and watering throughout the variety of gardens and the trail. To volunteer to help with the gardens, please email karendbeverly@gmail.com.

• We also take part in local Project Clean Stream events, which involve cleaning up our community waterways and surrounding areas.
