Mission trips — Each year, folks from our church go on short-term mission trips to serve people and share the gospel of Jesus Christ across America and around the world. We have sent teams to Vermont, Ohio, Maine, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nicaragua, and the Bahamas. Also, individuals from our church have gone on mission trips to Turkey, China, Mexico, Peru, Panama and other countries. We encourage people to be involved in missions by doing missions.
In January 2012, we returned to Masaya, Nicaragua and the Primera Iglesia Bautista Emanuel (First Baptist Church Emanuel in Masaya). We focused on 5 key areas of serving:
- Vacation Bible School in the Pochote community
