Mission Opportunities

 
Partnering with Chris Wimer!
Chris is serving as a full-time missionary in Quito, Ecuador.  He is now finishing his 3 year commitment to teach at a school for missionary children and is committing to a 2nd term at his school. 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. 
 
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.
