"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NIV)
Our church (adults and youth) is actively involved in missions, both in the United States and abroad. Our first mission trip was to the Ivory Coast, in West Africa, in 1990. Since then, we have been to Costa Rica (in 1992), Carmel, IN (in 1994); Thomasville, GA (in 1995). The next few years included trips to Uganda, Africa; Honduras, Brazil, and Mexico; Richmond, VA; New York; Huntersville, WV; the Gulf Coast, Mississippi, Tennessee, Germany, Pennsylvania, Spain, and Peru. We have formed an ongoing relationship with Rev. Godfrey Wanamitsa, president of Arise Africa, and continue to support him and his ministry. We have also developed a continuing relationship with Mike Kennedy and New Life Children’s Home in Peru. In 2011, mission trips included a youth trip to No. Dakota, PA, Peru (adult & youth), and Romania; 2012 & 2013 included Puerto Rico and Peru. During the summers of 2012 & 2013 we ministered in Henry County through extended mission project weekends.
