God calls us to feed the hungry in both body and soul, welcome the stranger, clothe the poor, and minister to those who are sick or in prison. The Board of Missions (BOM) strives to respond to this call by ministering to those in need, and in so doing, continue to grow in our faith.
The BOM encourages the congregation’s engagement in missions through promoting, developing, and implementing projects and programs, many times alongside faith-based organizations within the community, state, country, and world. At the same time, with so many important needs and limited resources, it can be extremely challenging to determine where best to be involved. However, at the present time the BOM has extra financial resources and a desire to grow the missions ministry of River Road Church.
The River Road Church Endowment Fund has made a significant grant to the BOM, with the expressed purpose: “to raise the missions involvement of River Road Church.” The BOM, in turn, wants to make these funds available to those who are willing to take the lead on a new endeavor, responding to the call to serve those in need.
You’re invited to bring your creativity to River Road Church, and help the BOM and congregation catch the spirit of your passion.
If there is a missions project or program in which you wish River Road Church would be involved and are willing to take the lead in make this effort happen, please fill out the form and return it to the church office or to Bob Shoemake, Chair of the Catch the Spirit Special Committee.
