Community Mission Day
April 4th, 2020
8am Breakfast –
(Sponsored by Dover, Eskridge Grove, Palmer Grove, and Zion Baptist-
and any other churches are welcome)
It is a day where folks from different churches gather together to serve on various mission projects. We meet for breakfast then head out in small groups to help build handicap ramps, clean gutters for homebound, cook lunches for the men’s and women’s shelter, visit with people in the nursing homes, and serve God in other various ways. Most projects are completed by lunch time while others may finish up in the afternoon.
Purpose of the Mission day
– to go and serve those in need within our community, “whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
– to build up the Christian fellowship within our church partnerships, (Dover, Eskridge Grove, Palmer Grove, Zion, and other churches)
