We will be partnering with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention to help with disaster relief from the recent tornadoes. Click here to donate directly to recovery efforts.







But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere — in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8 NLT)

Jesus told his disciples that they would have an ever-expanding influence from their community to the ends of the world. God's desire is for people to become disciples, and our strategy is to serve God by serving others in our community, our state, our country and other continents.

  • Adults on Mission- Men and women meet for dinner at 6:30 pm in the Fellowship Center on the first Tuesday of every month to hear from missionaries the exciting things that God is doing in their field and to learn how we can best pray for and support them. Contact: Jeri Smyrl at 281-993-8536.      

  • Missions on the Go - Meets Tuesday & Thursday of each week at the Crossroads Ministry, which provides meals and clothing to the homeless in the downtown Houston area, to help sort donations, give clothing to clients and serve meal.

Our 2014 Mission trip is to Eagle Pass, Texas was a rewarding and meaningful time for our group.  We worked with construction on two homes that needed help.  Thank you for your prayers for the trip and pray about joining us next year for our construction mission trip.
