National Mission Trips - Our most recent national trip was in 2012. We traveled to Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky.

Offering of Letters - Each year we participate in Bread for the World's annual Offering of Letters to influence legislation related to a specific hunger issue.

 

Last week members of the First Church mission team returned from a week's work at the Morgan Scott Project in eastern Tennessee. It was a long, hard week most of it spent working in the rain. We were able to complete one wheel chair ramp begun by another group and almost finish a second ramp. A low-income home was cleaned from top to bottom, the inside painted and new flooring laid. Donation trucks were unloaded and food given way.  Thanks to everyone who worked so hard. It was a great week spent loving God and loving neighbor.
