Mission Opportunities

Opportunities to Serve!  UB Global is looking for a few more individuals to join their work teams headed to Sierra Leone, West Africa.  Each team will go for two weeks (in February and March), working alongside locals to build a new roof for the maternity unit at the Mattru Hospital.  The main work will be welding.  We have three welders along with others familiar with construction.  The trip cost is around $3000.  If interested contact Michelle Harris, UB  Global Assoc. Director at michelle@ub.org or 1-888-622-3019.  Note:  There is also an English Camp in Poland being planned for June 22-July 3.  More details at ubglobal.org/events/trips.
Partnering with Chris Wimer!
Chris is serving as a full-time missionary in Quito, Ecuador.  He is now in year 2 of his initial 3 year commitment to teach at a school for missionary children. As Chris’ church family, we have made a commitment to support him in two ways, through prayer and with our finances. If you would like to get involved in supporting Chris through your prayers or finances, please contact the church office for more information. To hear Chris’ testimony or hear Pastor Denny’s giving challenge, please listen here to the July 23 (slide to the 2nd half of the sermon) and/or August 13 sermons.
Operation Christmas Child
For several years, we have challenged the church family to share a box of love for Christmas with boys and girls around the world.  Items are collected for children around the world and are placed in shoeboxes (cardboard or plastic) for distribution. This gift is a special treat for the children who often receive no other gifts – but also comes with the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To learn more, check out the Operation Christmas Child website. If you have further questions about getting involved in the shoebox ministry, please call Vonda Grant.
Global Outreach
As a church we are committed to reaching out beyond Augusta County with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Ways we get involved are as varied as teaching our kids about missions during Vacation Bible School, hosting guest missionary speakers, to having some of our own church family participate in short-team mission trips. In recent years, individuals have served in Honduras, Costa Rica, India and West Virginia. For more information about what is available through efforts with other like-minded churches and how you can get involved beyond our local church efforts, check out information about short-term mission trips at www.ubglobal.org.
