Missions

Our Purpose

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." 

Giving

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).

We have wrapped up FBC OCC collection for 2020. 

Did you know we are a National Drop Off site for Operation Christmas Child?
What does that mean? FBC will collect Operation Christmas Child boxes (just like the ones we collected) for Cleveland and the surrounding communities!
We need help collecting boxes during National Collection Week (November 16-23)
