A Desire to Serve
We have a heart for missions!
We believe mission involvement is the natural result of our faith. When our hearts are filled by God, we naturally want to share God’s love with others.
Following Christ’s command to “Go therefore and make disciples,” our church supports missions through our praying, our serving, our going, and our giving. Through reading camp, backpack program, mission trips, and so much more, our congregation works to serve and share with people and communities in need.
Ways to get involved
See below for current ways that you can get involved in being the body of Christ in our community. This list will update regularly with ongoing projects. Contact the office for more information on ways to serve.
Payday Loans are evil. We want to help people escape the trap of suffocating interest by converting their payday loan into a low-interest traditional Commonwealth Credit Union loan. If you have a payday loan and need help call (502) 863-1537. If you would like to volunteer with this program contact the office.
We do not provide benevolence funds directly to people, instead referring them to the several resources in the area. However, every month we collect money for Amen House’s Financial Assistance Program that helps people with rent and utility bills. You can support this program by designating your online gift as “benevolence.”
We have partnered with Scarlette Jasper, a CBF Field Personnel in Eastern Kentucky, to support her financially, materially, prayerfully, and through labor. We offer her encouragement and support as she does incredible work as a missionary in some of the poorest counties in the United States. You can get involved by praying for her and by sending her an encouraging card.
On Mondays, teams From faith provide lunch for our friends at The Gathering Place Mission. If you would like to help prepare or serve food, contact Pat Blackburn.
Twice a week during the school year and for one week during the Summer we host a reading camp for students at Southern Elementary involving reading, art, and activities. If you would like to be a reading buddy, contact Elizabeth Sands Wise.
Throughout the year we provide prayer quilts to people as a tangible token of our prayers for them. These quilts are crafted by quilters in our congregation and blessed in worship. If you’d like to help make quilts, let us know.
Christmas Shoebox Ministry
Every year we collect boxes of basic items for Scarlette to distribute to the families she serves. Click here to view the supply and instruction list for Christmas shoe boxes!
Community Medical Mission
Located in our building, the Community Medical Mission is a group of doctors and nurses who volunteer to provide a free health clinic for uninsured, low-income citizens of Scott County. Services are available every other Thursday from 5:30 – 8:30 PM. They need English/Spanish translators and a substitute phlebotomist. Call the church office if you have one of these skills.
Back to School Bash
We join with several other churches in Georgetown to make sure every Elementary student has a pair of shoes, socks, and backpack as they go back to school. Contact the church office to sign up to supply a student with these important things.
Other Mission Opportunities
Faith has participated in various mission activities in addition to the ones listed above. Some examples are providing prayer quilts for those facing health concerns, giving baby showers in Owsley County, and collecting support supplies for Southern Elementary.
