Missions

Due to continued travel restrictions, we have not been able to schedule mission trips yet for 2021 with our mission partners.

We will let you know when trips are scheduled.

Columbia First

Our mission of making disciples for the glory of God begins with Columbia first.

PARTNER SCHOOLS
From Marshall County to Hampshire, and everywhere in between, even in a pandemic year, thanks to the great relationship we enjoy with our local schools, we were given as many, if not more, opportunities to serve them than ever before! We’ve spoken at chapels and at FCA gatherings and  supplied thousands of dollars in cleaning supplies and other needed items. We’ve also provided gas gift cards and served breakfast to teachers and staff who have been working tirelessly to help students. Our Student Ministry Center has been made available to remote learners Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon to utilize WiFi. Our WiFi reach has also been expanded into the parking lots outside the FIRST KIDS' building, Student Ministry Center, and picnic shelter.

In all of this, we’ve formed and strengthened Gospel relationships, shared the life-changing love of Jesus Christ with thousands of students and staff,  and have seen several make decisions for Christ! Contact the pastor connected with each school to learn how to get involved, or contact our Student Pastor Ryan McMichael, who oversees this outreach:

Brown Elementary School: Pastor Dathan Hale
Mt. Pleasant Middle School: Pastor Deron Henry
Riverside Elementary School: Pastor Joey Scruggs
Culleoka Unit School, Whitthorne Middle School, Central High School: Pastor Ryan McMichael
LAUNDROMAT TEAM
We are exploring new opportunities and methods of ministering through our local laundromats that will provide a safe atmosphere to communicate our love for this city. During these past months, we have been providing laundromat gift cards to many who could benefit from this support. If you would like to join our Laundromat Ministry group to receive updates, please contact Pastor Rick. Contact: Pastor Rick Blevins
FIRST RESPONDERS
Our First Responders ministry continues to provide support for our local law enforcement officers, members of our local fire departments, and emergency medical technicians through prayer support and notes of encouragement.  We are always open to new ideas and ways in which we may be of assistance to these individuals and additional volunteers are needed.  If you are interested in assisting in this ministry please contact Pastor Joey.   Contact: Pastor Joey Scruggs
BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our hands-on ministry with the Boys and Girls Club has been suspended. We do occasionally get the opportunity to help with special projects like stuffing envelopes. Once restrictions are lifted, opportunities to volunteer will be available for after-school programs and other club activities.  Contact: Pastor Dathan Hale
