ALL ABOUT MISSIONS:

 

          Teaching, giving, and practicing missions is a vital part of the life of this church.  Strong emphasis over the years has been placed on the importance of missions and mission work. Following is a brief recap of mission outreach from this church.

 

          The “teaching of missions” is promoted in every organization within the church:  the women’s organizations, the men’s fellowship, and all of the different youth and children’s groups.

 

          The “giving to missions” is done on a monthly basis, as 26% of all undesignated receipts of the church is designated to missions.  Over and above this 26% are such yearly offerings as:  Eliza Broadus Offering for State Missions; the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions; the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions; the “Shopping Spree” and “Turkey Fund” for Clear Creek Baptist Bible College; Gideon’s International; the Kentucky Temperance League; and the Thanksgiving Offering for Kentucky Baptist Child Care.

 

          The “practicing missions” involves giving an opportunity to the total membership of the church to be involved, as several mission projects are conducted throughout the year.  On a smaller scale, there is a group from within the church who has built several ramps, porches, and landings for handicapped persons throughout the community – members as well as nonmembers.  On a larger scale, one week-long project is scheduled each summer.  During the summer of 2003 an older building was torn down, and a new three room “motel type building” was built at the Emmanuel Bible Camp.  In 2004 we returned to the same camp to build a new girls’ cottage.  Labor and materials were provided at no cost to the camp. This camp is located only a few miles from our church.
