Missions

Grace is a place where reaching out to people through local and foreign missions is a priority.

Whether you'd just like to meet a few missionaries and hear their stories or jump in and take a mission trip, several opportunities exist to help you. Cory Ogborn is our missions director for any further assistance you may need.

Family Missions Festival

To get our church family involved in missions we offer an annual "Family Missions Festival".  This normally takes place in the fall of the year. The focus is on foreign missions and often a special missionary guest is invited to challenge the congregation. This special day features display booths from local mission groups as well as overseas groups under the big tent on the church patio. We have a family bar-b-que after service where everyone can get plenty of free burgers, hot dogs, chips and soda and time to visit each missionary booth. 

Support Our Military

Our men and women in the armed services need our support. If you would like to be part of team that sends cards and care boxes or simply be on their prayer team, please contact Carol Pitts.  Here is a list of service men and women from our church.

Short-term Mission Trips

Every year we send several teams to assist a mission with building projects and various other projects depending on need. We have sent teams to Brazil, Fiji, Ecuador, Colombia, Guatemala, Mississippi, and Alaska.

College Mission Trips

We team up with Students International and our trips are expanding. Contact Cory Ogborn for more information or an application.

High School Mission2Mexico

"Mission2Mexico" is an annual event during spring break. Our students go back to the same local each year and have built a strong relationship with a church in Uruapan. Students must register, raise their own funding, attend four mandatory training sessions and get a prayer team in place. We approach this trip as an opportunity for students to learn just how missionaries operate in a foreign country. This is no vacation but a very rewarding experience. Short term trips require an application and a team covenant. Contact Pastor Stephen for more information. You may download an application here.

Family Mission2Mexico

Our Family Mission2Mexico (FM2M) trip is designed for folks who may not have had a “missions ministry experience”. During our time in Uruapan, Mexico we stay at the Mt. of Olives Children’s Village. We room with the residents and use the Children’s Village as our base of operations. Our outreach activities include holding a 3-day Vacation Bible School at a local church and visiting migrant farm worker camps where we take gifts to and play games with the residents of the camps. We also do light maintenance and construction work at the Children’s Village site. The success of the family ministry experience can be measured by the unanimous desire of participants to return.
