Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

It is a wonderful opportunity to be in mission with God in God's mission field.  Whether it be in our local community, in our state, around our country, or out of the country, God can use each of our talents for the mission field.

Local Missions

We have several different local mission projects we are supporting and encouraging you to be a part of.  From our local food pantry which helps serve those that are hungry, to our partnering with other churches such as the Presbyterian Church of Washington, MO to help with making meals for the Meals on Wheels program, we have opportunities for local missions.

Food Pantry

The food pantry is open Friday afternoons from 2:00pm-4:00pm at the church.  No background check is required.
