Missions

 

“Christ has no body now but yours; no hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes with which he looks with compassion on this world. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”
— St. Teresa of Avila

We have a heart for missions!

We believe mission involvement is the natural result of a real faith. When our hearts are filled by God, we naturally want to share God’s love with others.

We believe that every person has a mission and their own place to serve. Finding their place of service and becoming the presence of Christ to others is the first step in building the kind of relationships that will take Christ’s love to the world.

Following Christ’s command to “Go therefore and make disciples,” our church supports missions through our praying, our serving, our going, and our giving. Through summer mission trips, family mission projects, and local mission organizations, our congregation works to serve and share with people and communities in need.

Winter Missions Opportunities 2021

FBC Laurens & FBC Simpsonville Tiny House

We are currently partnering with FBC Simpsonville to complete a tiny house for an older single gentleman who lives near Sanders Middle School.  There is some interior work and landscaping that will need to be done in the early part of 2021 to complete the project.  If you are interested in helping, please contact our Missions Chair Jim Cothran at jcothran@prtcnet.com.

Handyman Ministry

From time to time, we have projects that emerge in our community and church that are often simple, one day projects that can be completed by a small group.  Our Missions Chair Jim Cothran keeps a list of those willing and interested in this type of work and then assigns projects as they arise.  To be a part of Jim’s list of willing volunteers, please contact him at jcothran@prtcnet.com.

Laurens Elementary Backpack Ministry

We continue to partner with Laurens Elementary to provide easy to prepare weekend meals for roughly 60 students.  Volunteers come to the church and pack each week’s bags in Bobo Hall. If this is a ministry that you would like to participate in, contact one of our two coordinators, Julie Hobbs or Susan Johnson.  Their contact info is juliehobbs1008@gmail.com or spjohnson12345@gmail.com.
