MISSION OPPORTUNITIES

The mission is greater than what happens in our church building on Sundays. Right now there are several opportunities for you to connect and serve immediate needs in our area. Below you’ll find contact information, days, and times of organizations that are out making impact. 

Due to the constantly evolving nature of the needs around us, we will not be formally organizing any groups to answer these needs. Instead, we will encourage everyone to walk this out in the way they're best able.

Golden Harvest Food Bank

Every dollar you give can provide 3 meals to children, families and seniors in our community.

Adopting Family: Ben & Mallory Bartley
Ben and Mallory are partners in our church family who are adopting. We asked them the a few questions about we could come alongside to love and support them. 

How can we, the church, be praying for you? 

First and foremost we ask for prayers for the adoption journey as a whole. It’s a scary process and we just pray that The Lord would give us peace during this time. We also ask for prayers for baby and for us as first time parents. Our prayer is that we would be the type of parents that not only love our child, but that we would also disciple and teach them accordion to God’s word. Lastly, we ask that you would pray for the birth mother who will choose us to parent her child. We can’t imagine the pain that she will soon face in making these decisions and we just pray for peace and comfort over her life. 

 

How can we, the church, come alongside you and support your families emotionally and spiritually?

I think the biggest support we could receive is just encouragement as we embark on this journey. We know that it takes a village to raise a child and we are asking that you would be a Godly example for not only us, but also for the baby that joins our family. 

 

How can we, the church as individuals and from our main budget, support you financially?

Our current goal is to raise $35,000 and we currently have raised $5,500. We have a yard sale planned on May 29th in which all proceeds will go towards the adoption. If you are looking to donate any items to our yard sale we would love to take them off your hands. We also have a puzzle fundraiser going on where we are “selling" puzzle pieces for $10 a piece. Your name goes on the back of the puzzle piece and once all the pieces have sold we will put the puzzle together and frame it. This puzzle we be a constant reminder of each and every person who was a part of helping us bring our missing piece home. Donations can be sent through PayPal (please send friends and family) to https://www.paypal.me/bartleysadopt or Venmo to @Mallory-Bartley

Building Up S.T.E.A.M.

Is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide all youth, especially those in disadvantaged circumstances, equal access to programs in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics to build a foundation for success in the job market of tomorrow.

Traditionally, sign-ups for STEM/STEAM programs are usually accompanied by hefty sign-up fees. As a result, kids in certain communities lack access and opportunity to practice and develop needed skills. One positive to the Pandemic, is the glimpse into the future that it has provided the world. It has shown us a world that is dominated by technology and virtual interaction. As a result, we have an obligation to equip every child, regardless of social-economic background, with the necessary skills to succeed in the industries that will drive tomorrow's economy.
