The Community & Global Missions Committee would like to expand our congregation's involvement in international missions. We hope to develop a relationship with an organization and/or community overseas that will provide chances for our church members to consistently serve, develop friendships, offer hope, and share God’s love.
We have an exciting opportunity to join a group of fellow Knoxvillians on a “vision trip” to Siguatepeque, Honduras from January 4-14, 2014. The team will be hosted by Scripture Union Honduras and will explore the ways that we can be involved with their ministry of teaching the Bible to children, youth and families, both in the local schools and at their camp, as well as other local opportunities (such as medical) which may be tailored by the interests of the team. The trip will be lead by Jim McKinney, a retired Knoxville dentist, who was born and raised in Siguatepeque, where his dad started the area’s first hospital.
We are looking for several Church Streeters to go on this trip to see the needs in Honduras and discern how our church may partner in what God is doing there. These individuals must then be willing to serve as leaders who will work together to coordinate CSUMC’s determined mission efforts.
An interest meeting will be held on Sunday, August 25 at 12:15 p.m. in CLC 11. If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Herchenrider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
