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.
For the past 5 years, we have ministered in various communities in Nicaragua. We plan to return again in January 2015 with a team of 14 for another blessed year being the hands and feet of Jesus and allowing Him to mold our hearts and minds in a greater way through during our service there.
In previous years, we have ministered in various capacities in partnership with Primera Iglesia Bautista Emanuel (First Baptist Church Emanuel in Masaya) and a local missionary, Dan Titus. Some of the works we have helped to facilitate include but are not limited to:
– Vacation Bible School
– Church building
– English as Second Language classes
– Sewing classes
– Singing and Choir ministry
– Medical Clinics
– Evangelism Ministry
– Constructing and outdoor basketball/sports court for community outreach
In August 2010 and August 2011, our youth ministry traveled to Pennsylvania to partner with YouthWorks on construction projects, ministry to children/families, and more.
