The Missions Committee of St. Paul’s church supports the work of the Great Commission to go into the world with the gospel of good news. There are two ways the committee works toward that goal. First, the donations of the congregation are used to support mission projects that are local, national, and international. That support is usually in the form of financial aid. The second way of supporting missions is through direct, hands on involvement with people and projects. For example, work teams are formed to meet specific needs locally (backyard mission, bloodmobile, Habitat Build, Salvation Army, City Mission, HYCO, Christian Clearing House), nationally (New Jersey, Henderson Settlement, McCurdy, Medical Mission to Mexico, Red Bird Mission), and internationally (Mission Possible, Nyembo Agricultural Project, Nyembo Health Center, Grace Children’s Hospital, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Campus Crusade). The congregation also supports Blanket Sunday and Festival of Sharing. There are also special, one-time needs that are temporary projects of the committee. The collection and donation of diapers for Henderson Settlement and the donation of health kits for individuals being released from Ohio prisons are just two of the kinds of opportunities that have been used in the past to spread knowledge and love of Jesus to the broader community.
