Nyamakope Village Water Project
 
 
During the 2021 seaons of Lent we set a goal to bring clean, safe water to the people of Nyamakope Village and the surrounding areas in Zimbabwe, Africa. Planning for drilling is now underway and we are organizing a mission trip to visit the villages and seek more ways we can share Christ with them. Learn more about this project and its outreach here!
 
The Church Has Left The Building
Four times each year, there is a fifth Sunday of the month. On those Sundays, the Outreach & Evangelism Committee organizes outreach events for us to be the Hands of Jesus in our community and others. Following worship service, the congregation splits off to serve the community in various areas or joins together as one group to complete a large project. Over the years, there there have been a number of opportunities for service for every age and ability. The nursery is available during these events. In the past, 5th Sunday activities have included volunteering at the local humane society, cleaning up alongside the local highways and areas, helping the landscaping crew at the local cemetery, singing hymns at various nursing homes around the city, and packaging meals for the Numana organization. 
Christmas Caroling for local nursing home residents. 
   
Singing hymns with the residents at local nursing homes.
Making fleece blankets for homeless and disadvantaged children in our local school districts.
 
Picking up trash at one of our local parks!
Cleaning cars for the elderly in local nursing homes.
 
Picking up trash around our local shopping centers. 
Playing board games and card games with the residents at the local nursing homes.
 
During the Covid-19 Pandemic our 5th Sunday had to look a little different. We held a supply drive to collect items for local agencies in order to support the community through them.
Gardening for God
We, as a church family, oversee one of the local community gardens that is available to our community. Anyone from the community can sign up for a plot and they can learn how to garden and grow their own food. At times our Outreach & Evangelism Committee will gather together a group to do some of the clean up and maintenance work that is required to run a community garden.
     
Godmothers
Godmothers is a small group that makes and donates baby quilts to local agencies for expectant mothers. They meet monthly on the 4th Thursday of the month from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Do you enjoy sewing? Is quilting your hobby? Get involved with this ministry and help us minister to those in need!
Broken Chain Ministry
Our Broken Chain Ministry is a group of parishioners who minister to inmates of the Finney County Jail. When possible, the team meets at the jail and leads a chapel service for the inmates and visits with them to offer support and healing. The team also consists of parishioners who write to the inmates and sends them encouragement while they serve their time. If you are interested in sharing Christ in this way, please contact Pastor Joel to see how you can get involved!
