The coming, life, death, resurrection, ascension and inevitable return of Jesus have changed everything for everyone on earth. He is God’s “good news” (the gospel). Everyone needs to hear about Him. We who know Him have the responsibility of telling others about Him—no matter what the cost.
For this reason we encourage and support people who have been called by God to serve Him as missionaries, either here, regionally or globally. It is an awesome calling to go. It is also an awesome calling to stay here and support those who do go.
In Our Community
We have several opportunities that we participate in regularly in our close community which are described on our Compassion and Community Assistance page:
- Winter Nights Family Shelter – a program of CCC Interfaith Council
- Angel Tree – a program of Prison Fellowship
From Our Community to the World
- Compassion International – Through the sponsorship of children-in-need throughout the world, we exchange letters, send photos and offer encouragement in Jesus’ name
- Operation Christmas Child – is a Samaritan’s Purse project designed to deliver good news and great joy to boys and girls in need around the world. As individuals and families we pack shoeboxes for a boy or a girl in a specific age range; these boxes are collected and delivered thousands of miles away, entering the care of Samaritan’s Purse ministry partners who plan distribution events at churches and other locations.
In the Nation
NAOMI House is a non-profit, mission home located in Northern Arizona and dedicated to providing a safe and loving home for Native American Children in Need.
We support them through prayer, donations, and short term missions trips.
In the World
This is a task that is most often far too large for any one church to undertake. For this reason, we work together with other Friends churches to find, train, encourage and send out missionaries. The missionaries we are closest to (in relationship) serve in Cambodia and Nepal.
- Two families are serving in Cambodia under difficult circumstances. The vision is to deepen the work through more missionaries as well as to expand the work into neighboring countries such as Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
- The missionary couple we support in Nepal began their ministry a little over twenty years ago. It now has grown toover forty churches, mostly in small rural villages. All the churches are entirely pastored and led by local Nepalese and the number of churches and believers continues to grow and grow.
Missionary work is challenging and requires great endurance. Our missionaries need our support and encouragement. We are pleased to be a part of their work to spread the good news of Jesus to people who have never heard of Him!
