The Missions Ministry team works to develop missions opportunities that help the church fulfill the Acts 1:8 mandate, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, that you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth."
The Missions Ministry team also sponsors our different annual offerings Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, and the Margaret Lackey Offering for State Missions.

Other Mission Opportunities
Operation Christmas Child
Every fall we assemble boxes for Operation Christmas Child Boxes. Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes are a great way for families to do a mission project together. Items are purchased such as soap, washcloth, toys, and other things to give to those in need all around the world. Each child that receives a box hears the Gospel (Matthew 28:19-20).
Our 2020 goal is 300 boxes. Shoeboxes will be available at each FBC exit starting Sunday, September 27. They are due back Sunday, November 8. We will pray over the boxes during the 6:00 P.M. service November 8.
