Jesus commissioned his disciples with an exciting task in the world: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8, NRSV).
We witness in a variety of ways through missions. Some of these missions are:
- Hosting homeless families who are trying to get back on their feet through the Family Promise program
- Delivering Christmas gifts to children of families who lack means
- Developing a special relationship with residents of a local group home
- Collecting items for a local pregnancy center and woman’s shelter
- Awarding a yearly scholarship to a worthy Woodstown High School graduate
- Participate annually in The Church Has Left the Building.
- A yearly mission trip to Institution Univers, a school in Haiti
- Sponsoring the education of two Haitian college students.
- Youth mission trips
- Making bandages to send oversees through White Cross
- Packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child
- Supporting international missionary families
