Our Missional Focus
Our goal through our missions is to make an impact in our world by showing the love grace and mercy that was demonstrated to us through the life of Jesus Christ. We do this through the sharing of our resources, time and energy. Throughout the year we focus on various opportunities we have to make a difference in people's lives. It may be making health kits for those impacted by earthquakes, preparing packages for soldiers, filling a mitten tree or through our food pantry. We should all realize that the richness we have is not to bring us a life of luxury but to enable to share our bounty with others that through our mission efforts others may come to know Christ's love.
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse that Epworth supports each year by collecting shoeboxes filled with various items to be distributed to children around the world. Each fall our goal is to fill over 200 boxes. We also form a mission team that goes to the distribution warehouse in North Carolina to work with others from around the country to ship shoeboxes to children around the world.
We welcome small toys and toiletry items (soap, toothpaste, brushes, wash cloths, etc.) to include in a shoebox. If you are interested in being part of our mission team please contact the church office.
