Serving Hands meets monthly, every second Friday at 9:15 AM in The Chapel.

They initially meet to assemble various material items requested by missionaries in the field, which they absolutely thrive on doing. After about an hour, they get together and support our missionaries in a pointed intercessory time of prayer. Following prayer time, they always have a guest speaker associated with missions to keep them aware of new developments in missions, perhaps a short term missions report, or even a word from our missions pastor.

They end at around 11:15 and then head out to a local restaurant for a time of fellowship, called the “Lunch Bunch”.

“SERVING OUR MISSIONARIES WITH OUR HEADS, HEARTS, AND HANDS.”

While this is a ladies’ group that averages in age at around 75, they always invite men to come in for the special speaker at around 10:30 AM. Matter of fact, anyone from the church family is invited to come in at that time to hear from the missionary speakers. These are unique opportunities to interact with our missionaries serving out in the trenches, and will give you a new appreciation for them.

Historically, the group started about 65 years ago and served our first missionaries, the Schuits and the Langfords. The story goes that they collected tea bags and supplied bandages torn from bed sheets for those early missionaries. Their unofficial mission statement is:

“SERVING OUR MISSIONARIES WITH OUR HEADS, HEARTS, AND HANDS.”

Currently, the group has near 40 in attendance each week.
