Giving & Sending

Not everyone is able to go as a missionary, but there are excellent opportunities to send a missionary.  We have three church wide campaigns each year.  The Lottie Moon mission campaign occurs around Christmas and is for international missions.  The Annie Armstong campaign occurs around Easter and is for home missions. The Operation Christmas Child is special as it occurs  at VBS.
