missions


Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of

the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  

and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  Matthew 28:19-20


Our mission is to be a reflection of Jesus Christ and to share His love and grace with this world.  We do this by sharing the gospel with our neighbors, going on annual mission trips where there is great need and supporting national and world missionaries through the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist convention.  We also support Mercy for Mamas and Operation Christmas Child.

engage

Engage is our local outreach to Lansing and Leavenworth.  Three times a year, we as a church family set aside a weekend to flood our community with kindness and tell other people about God's love.  We may do this by giving away quarters at a laundromat or feeding pancakes to people downtown or cleaning up the downtown.  But everything we do is done in love.

cooperative  program

The Cooperative Program is the funding organization for thousands of Southern Baptist missionaries on the North America Mission Board and the International Mission Board.  A designated offering and an annual percentage of our giving goes to support these missions.

mercy  for  mamas

Mercy for Mamas started in 2010 when Melissa Busby, from Mulvane, Kansas,  took a mission trip to Uganda and adopted a baby girl whose mother had died from delivery complications.  She learned that many women in Uganda can not afford sanitary supplies for delivering their babies.  She established an charitable organization that provides Mama Kits that contain sanitary medical supplies.  They take mission trips to Uganda once or twice a year to hand out supplies and reach out to women.  For more information of this organization, check out their website, Mercyformamas.com

operation  christmas  child

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, run by Franklin Graham.  In November, we collect shoe boxes full of  toys, school supplies, and personal hygiene items.  Samaritan's Purse delivers those shoe boxes to children in need all over the world.  We are a local distribution point to Operation Christmas Child.  You can find more information at Samaritanspurse.org.
