International Outreach

The church has partnered with local organizations that help internationally: Stop Hunger Now and Operation Christmas Child, but we also have international partners as well.  The church has for over a decade supported Eden's Children Village in Zimbabwe and many members individually support children there through monthly giving. 

The church has recently been active in going to international locations to see what God is doing in other places.  In the last few years the church has gone to Haiti to support Haiti Outreach Ministries, Zimbabwe to support Eden's Children Village, and India to support Rescuing Lives.




A trip to Eden Children's Village this summer will be the third trip members have taken to visit the children and work on projects. Our church has been involved with this orphanage for about 15 years. Members and groups currently sponsor 24 children and have contact with them through letters and pictures. Having hosted the directors and a small group of children here, we have a strong relationship with the orphanage.

This year the trip will take on an added dimension by partnering with the local Habitat for Humanity
affiliate. It is an exciting trip to have experienced construction folks along as we will be
aiding in the construction of a new school for the orphanage.


Details of the trip:

Travel dates - May 22nd - June 6th.

Total cost approximately $2600. This covers airfare $2000; $325 room, board, transportation at the orphanage; $270 to visit a game park (everyone should visit if you are traveling all the way to Africa!); $100. airport fees. It does not include passport fees, travel insurance or personal spending.

It is an incredible experience to to see God at work with these children, from newborns to an age where they are being prepared for a vocation. We are so blessed to have this opportunity.
