DR MISSION TRIP
Mission trips are not only a wonderful way to serve others, but they often create an environment for a deeper relationship with God. If yo have ever had a “nudge” about doing a mission trip, we encourage you to take the next step and reach out for more information. Our next annual mission trip to the Dominican Republic will be July 21-31, 2019. For more information, or to register, please contact Rob Wegner.

QUILTERS FOR CHRIST: Ongoing
Meets weekly on Thursdays from 9:00-11:00am in the Mission Room. Everyone welcome, no experience necessary. Contact: Karen Rowell.
BELLEVUE FOOD PANTRY: Ongoing
Thanksgiving partners with the Bellevue Food Pantry to ensure local families have the resources needed to thrive. We have shopping bags designated for the food pantry that we invite our congregation to fill and return to the church on a regular basis. There is a core of volunteers who help to transport and sort the food for the pantry. For more information, please contact the church office.
We believe that part of our call as a church is to share our resources with other organizations throughout the community, nation and world. It is for this reason that we annually give away over 15% of our offerings to other ministries. Below is a list of a few of the ministries that we support along with links to their websites so that you can learn more about them and consider ways that God may be calling you to support their ministry through prayer, volunteering or a financial gift.
