LOCAL OUTREACHES

We are Christ's ambassadors.  In our daily life, in our home town, God asks us to be salt, light,
and reach out to our neighbors in need. 
(Matthew 5 and 25, Isaiah 58).

Christ's Church's pastors and members strive to show God's love to those in need in many ways:
 
​*Benevolence financial assistance to families in crisis
*Groceries in times of need
*Free Garage Sale (giving away furniture, clothes, toys, etc.)
*James 1 Crew (small projects for widows or other in need)
*Gifts of Love (provides Christmas gifts to local families in need)
*Free School Supply Giveaways
*Thanksgiving Food Boxes
*Job and financial counseling
*Hope's Closet (clothes and household items available to anyone in need)
*Visiting the detention center and prison
*Home and hospital visits to those in need
*Always sharing God's Word and praying for anyone, anytime.

WHY DO OUTREACH AND MISSIONS?  

If you are interested in learning about upcoming outreaches, or have ideas for a local outreach, please e-mail Chris LaDuca. (chris@christschurchroswell.com)

Mission trips serve 3 primary purposes:

  1. To meet a need in a community and show God's love to people.

  2. To challenge and grow those who go by, taking them out of their comfort zones to serve others and follow God's call.

  3. To encourage and lend support to the full-time missionaries that host and lead us.

Some examples of past trips include:

  • Building an orphanage for children in Thailand. 

  • Kid's ministry and construction in Guatemala.

  • Bringing food, shoes, coats and the Gospel message to Juarez, Mexico, partnering with Iglesia Agua Viva.

  • Our youth group partnered with the Dream Center in Kansas City to serve families in low income areas.

MISSIONARY SUPPORT

We support many full-time missionaries financially to allow them to focus their time and efforts on their ministry
and the people to which God has called them.  

We partner with missionaries and mission agencies locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

While supporting our missionaries financially is vitally important, we recognize their need does not end there. 
That is why we pray regularly for our missionaries, send them encouraging letters and emails, and send a team to work alongside them as often as possible.

Want to regularly write and pray for our missionaries? Contact me at Chris@Christschurchroswell.com!

Want to financially support a missionary?  Write their name in the memo of your check before putting it in the offering.
