Compassion International Sponsorship
Our Christian Education program supports one child through this effort. If you'd like to learn more about sponsoring a child, visit Compassion International's website or pick up a brochure in Fellowship Hall.
We support our American Baptist missionaries through White Cross donations, which help to meet the physical needs of people in the U.S. and overseas. If you'd like to help, please contact Joanne Brown or Nancy Meuse (or use the "Contact Us" form on this page).
Each Christmas, we gather shoeboxes filled with gifts and send them to children around the world through Samaritan's Purse. Samaritan's Purse is a Christian organization that seeks to spread the gospel message through this ministry.
Murrow Indian Children's Home
The Murrow Home in Muskogee, OK provides care for Native American Children in crisis. We collect UPC codes via Labels for Education, and these points support The Murrow Home. Click here for a list of participating products. UPCs can be placed in the box in Fellowship Hall.
Upcoming mission trips include the Tuscarora Indian Reservation (2016), Cuba (2016), and Alaska (2017). If you would like to help shine the light of Jesus on one of these Mission Adventures speak with any on the Missions Board and we can help you with the details. Some include home and church rebuilds, others VBS, youth and music work and others hope and healing.
Tithes and Offerings
Our missions budget supports a number of local, national, and global ministries. We also collect a communion offering each month to meet a special need in our community or around the world.
