The FBC Missions Ministry engages the entire church family in opportunities to live out the Great Commandment. (Matthew 22:37-40; Matthew 28: 18-20) .
Cultivate. Motivate. Activate.
The FBC Missions Ministry works with the Elders to support local, regional, and cross-cultural mission efforts. In our congregation we serve to cultivate an awareness of various mission organizations, to motivate participation in events that help support para-church ministries.
The FBC Missions Team helps to connect people and budgeted financial support to mission organizations. This team also promotes special events to draw attention to our mission organizations and their efforts. Our church family and local community are invited to help support these organizations by participating in events such as:
– The Dirndl Sale is every September to aid refugees and indigent communities in Eastern Europe through OASE in Hersbruck, Germany.
– The Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Collection is in November is for Samaritan’s Purse.
– The Heartbeat Crisis Pregnancy Center Annual Banquet and Baby Bottle Drive are in January.
– The Elim Christian Center, Poland.
– Eremeev family, Moldova.
– Natasha Pascal, Moldova.
Our Mission Team also organizes short term missions trips for members of our Faith family.
