Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Every Christian is a missionary to someone – somewhere. Whether it is in our home, community, or beyond, there are those that God wants to touch – through us! Throughout the year we will provide opportunities to help you serve. 

Missions Month 2024

Each year, Family Church sets aside a month to emphasize the importance of missions in the life of the church as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission. We will emphasize a different aspect of our participation over the month of February. You will have the opportunity to learn more about what God is doing locally and around the world to bring people to himself through Jesus Christ.
Every Christian is a missionary to someone – somewhere. Whether it is in our home, community, or beyond, there are those that God wants to touch – through us! Let all commit to be ‘on mission’ every day, taking the Gospel to those who need to hear ‘Good News.’

"Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest field."  - Luke 10:2

We have 5 prayer tools to help us as we partner with both IMB and our Independent Missionaries in the Field, at home and abroad. Let use these 5 tools in 2024, to faithfully PRAY for our Missionaries.

"Be generous...and your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God " - 2 Corinthians 9:11 

Cooperative Program Giving - We will send a check each month from our Church budget to the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention.
 Giving to other Missionaries and Ministries - We will send a monthly check from our budget to support these non-Southern Baptist missionaries.

"After they had fasted and prayed, they laid hands on them and sent them off." – Acts 13:2 

Our Missions Committee will prayerfully consider opportunities each year for individuals and teams to go on stateside and international trips. They will promote the trip and hope that every member of Family Church will prayerfully consider going, if at all possible, as well as pray for other members who should participate.

"Go and make disciples of all nations." - Matthew 28:19

Locally, we are committed to the serving and supporting several Community Connections. We are also planning to GO on several mission trips this year. We hope everyone will find at least one way you can be supportive and serve.

We have an ongoing need for volunteers who have been trained and prepared to help during a disaster. You can go through training in-person or online to be ready to answer the call.

November 1-9, 2024

The team will assist the church in construction on the church property, participate in nightly worship services/Sunday services, and help with other Bible studies for women and children. The construction is “light” so specialized skills are not necessary but the ability to do physical labor is needed. This is an opportunity to serve the church in Cuba and experience what God is doing to reach an island for Jesus. The cost of this trip is approximately $900. The team is limited to 10 people.

Operation Christmas Child  Shoebox Mission Trip - Atlanta, Ga - December 2-6, 2024

This trip is open to anyone 13 or older (13-17 year olds must be accompanied by a chaperone). The cost of this trip is  approximately $800 (dependent upon transportation costs).
