We are a church in mission! Mission opportunities are available for children, women, and men of all ages!

We believe passionately that Christ calls us to reach out to the disadvantaged and help in every way we possibly can. In addition to our hands-on efforts, some noted below, we commit funds to key community agencies such as Angels Clinic, Needline, Boy Scouts, and the Gentry House. Jesus reminded us, “As you’ve done for the least of these my brothers and sisters, you’ve done for me.” We take that call and that challenge seriously!

Here is a list of some of the additional mission outreach opportunities:

  • H.E.L.P. House Ministry

    • For information concerning the H.E.L.P. House please contact the church office (270-753-3812).
  • Community Kitchen Feeding Program

    • The community kitchen serves lunch to those in our community on Sundays at 12:30 PM.  This is a great ministry and volunteer opportunity.  If you have any questions please contact  Dana Stonecipher (270-753-0392).
