  • ONGOING COLLECTIONS FOR MISSION

    We have continuous collections for 


    St. John's Breadline:  We collect plastic containers with lids which are used to send home meals for those who are served through St. John's Breadline, a ministry to feed the hungry in Springfield, IL.  There is a collection barrel located on the main floor hallway.  

    Shoeman Ministry:  We collect good used shoes to donate to the Shoeman Ministry, who use these shoes to provide for needs in both the United States and various countries in Africa.  For more information on the Shoeman Ministry please go to their website.  There is a collection barrel on the main floor hallway.  We ask that all pair of shoes either have their laces tied together or have a rubber band holding them together.  

    Penny Jar / Angel Tree:  We collect loose change in an empty 5 gallon water bottle located on a table in the main hallway. The money collected is used to purchase items for the local Angel Tree ministry which provides Christmas gifts for children in need.  

    Food Bank:  We have a grocery shopping cart located in the main hallway where you may drop off food items for the community food bank. The community food bank is located in the Salvation Army Store.  There is a list of the items most needed in the shopping cart, but all food is accepted.  

     


OUR MISSION STATEMENT

 

 

LOVE GOD FOLLOW JESUS DO OUR PART

 
We seek to love God:
Matthew 22:36-38 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: "’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment.”
 
follow Jesus:
Jesus repeatedly called for people to “Follow me” (see Matthew 4:19, 8:22, 9:9, 10:38, 16:24; Mark 1:17, 10:21; John 1:43, 10:27, 12:26, 21:19, 21:22)
 
do our part:
1 Peter 4:10   “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”   (1 Corinthians 12:7, Genesis 12:2)
 
 
We will fulfill this mission by…
 
v     Loving God: We will love God by expressing it in words of praise (worship); giving gifts to God (offerings and helping the “least of these” (Matthew 25:40); spending time with God through prayer and study of the Bible; and treating God as He should be treated, which includes seeking to obey His commands (1 John 5:3)
 
v     Turning away from conforming to the world’s pattern while learning to follow Jesus, who shows the way.
 
v     Practicing reconciliation; differences and dissension will be dealt with constructively.
 
v     Encouraging small group activity, learning to live the Christian life more fully together.
 
v     Studying the Scriptures and becoming obedient to the Word.
 
v     Recognizing that Christianity is a journey and we are all works in progress.
 
v     Spreading the gospel message through our missions, both near and far.
 
v     Acting in such a way that those who don’t know Jesus will see His love and joy reflected in us.
 
v     Supporting God’s work by sharing our time, talents and treasures, great and small.
 
v     Discovering our spiritual gifts and finding ways to put them to use for the greater good
 
v     Practicing hospitality; reaching out and inviting people to new relationships with God.
