Mission Groups - various days and times
We have a number of different mission groups who minister in nursing homes, who work with Operation Christmas Child, and who help meet needs in the community. We are still collecting and distributing furniture, household items, and children’s clothes for those who are still recovering from the widespread flooding our area experienced in Hurricane Florence. In these mission groups you will get to know people with a servant heart as you also make a difference in the lives of others.
