World Missions

After His resurrection, Jesus showed Himself to His followers and said to them, “Peace be unto you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21) He instructed his followers to go out to all nations and spread the good news of God's grace and salvation.

We provide financial and prayer support to several international mission causes.

Meet Pat and Melenda Edmiston

We were pleased to welcome Pat and Melenda Edmiston from Wycliffe Bible Translators, on Sunday, July 12 as part of our Mission Sunday. 

Our church has been supporting the translation team, who have worked in Papua New Guinea and other countries in the world, by bringing the Bible to people who have no written language.  

Pat and Melenda shared about their work with our Sunday morning classes, as well as the congregation during morning worship.

Operation Christmas Child

Each November, we participate in the Operation Christmas Child shoebox project, an outreach of Samaritan's Purse that delivers Christmas gifts and a message of hope to children all over the world. Church members are invited to take home one or more of the white shoeboxes and fill it with small toys, school supplies, books, socks, hats, hard candy, gum, and hygiene items. Filled shoeboxes are then shipped to a regional OCC warehouse that wraps and ships the shoeboxes by planes, trains, trucks, and even camels to children in time for Christmas.
