People Groups

Matthew 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,  20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (NASB)

 Unengaged Unreached People Groups (UUPGs)

 world map of people groupsThese people groups do not have any resources to hear about or discover the gospel of Jesus Christ. They have no Bibles in their language, no Jesus film, no missionaries in their area, no one reaching out to or praying for them. Our goal is to adopt these groups below and begin these following steps:

1. Adopt to Pray: Pray for our adopted people groups.

2. Partner to Reach: Come alongside and join the missionaries in the field to work hand in hand to see sustainable, effective churches planted among these people groups.

3. Embrace to Engage:  Working intentionally to see churches planted.

4. Go: Work together to send teams to minister to the people groups.

Neighbor to Neighbor Home Repair Ministry

 

This ministry's purpose is rooted in the scripture verse:

"Love your neighbor as yourself." Mark 12:31

 

Our mission statement is:

"To demonstrate the love of God to our neighbors in a tangible way; to involve our families in a way that will allow us to lead by example; and to promote His kingdom while improving the condition of our community."

 

For our church members, we will assess the need as noted on the "Application for Housing Repairs Benevolence" form (see below) and determine if we have volunteers, materials and funds available to assist with the home repairs and/or yard work described.  

 

If you would like to help volunteer with this ministry, download the "Volunteer Application Form", fill it out and turn it in to the church office or submit it electronically.
