One of the greatest life changing experiences for a believer is to go on a mission trip. Whether it’s helping a new church in another state or visiting a missionary working in another count — you’ll never fully understand the importance of missions until you go. Every person needs to see it, feel it and experience it first hand. We encourage you to look through the following opportunities and pray about going. We promise — you will be glad you did!

There are other missions opportunities that are local and many times church-wide, where we can take the love of Jesus into our community in a variety of ways. By volunteering and getting involved with these community events we’re able to show others the love of Jesus in a very meaningful and powerful way.
There are a number of projects, community sponsored events and church planned activities to choose from throughout the year. It’s our desire see every member involved in some way, helping us reach our community with the good news of Jesus.
Missions begins right here in our own city and community. A local missions opportunity is a great place to begin being on mission for the Lord. Please consider getting involved in one of the following upcoming missions opportunities.
- Alabama Jubilee
- NCC Underwear Drive
- CCC Canned Food Drive
- CCC Clothes Closet Drive
- Dollar-A-Month Club (a different community service project each month)
