We are blessed to be a part of such a loving and giving congregation at First Christian Church!
Thanks to your support, the Missions Ministry was able to disburse $9,611 in funds this year to help others.
Our purpose is to support our three Mission Partners – Horizon International (South Africa), Freedom International (Dominican Republic), and Our Own Home (Uganda). All the funds used to support these groups come from three sources: your specific giving to the Missions Ministry through the offering; the Blind Raffle; and The Tree of Hope. We appreciate your support and you will find information on our largest fund-raiser, the Blind Raffle, elsewhere (as well as our new webpage – see below) .
Additionally, we have two other fundraisers each year – Marcelle’s Magnificent Cheese balls for the holidays and Super Bowl Subs on Super Bowl weekend. The profits from these two fundraisers go directly toward any mission trip anyone is planning on taking as a way to reduce the cost. These funds are not included in the Missions Ministry budget.
Your support of the Peanut Brittle sales also benefits the Missions Ministry! That committee generously donates a portion of the profits in exchange for the members of the Missions Ministry setting up on Thursday evenings during peanut brittle production time. All funds raised in this manner are designated for Mission Trip Scholarships! Please never let the cost of a trip deter you from going on a Mission Trip.There are funds available and ways to earn additional money for you trip. Just contact us!
Any donations marked specifically for Ross and Lindsey Games and Our Own Home in Uganda go directly to their living expenses and special activities for the children they care for. They are not included in the Missions Ministry budget. Your continued support is encouraged.
We promote mission trips as a way to fulfill the Great Commission. There is a mission trip for everyone…no matter what your age or limitations may be! We work closely with our Mission Partners and have trips to visit their locations. We are also always looking for other trips that might be of interest to our congregation.
Please let us know if there is something you are interested in!
In conjunction with the updating of the Church’s webpage, the Missions Ministry is working on our page! We can be found at: www.fccnoblesvillemissions.com and very soon will be linked directly to the church’s main page. It is very user friendly and interactive. Check it out!
Lastly, you DO NOT have to go on a Mission trip to be a part of the Missions Ministry at FCC! If you would like to help with the fundraisers and the distribution of the funds, please let us know. We’d be happy to have you join us!
