St. Mary's has lasting relationships with three ministries that include mission trips:
Our partner church is Divina Graci in Mosovi, DR. We pray for each other regularly, exchange communication, and visit when possible. Past visits from St. Mary's to Divina Graci have included construction projects and vacation bible schools. Contact Jon & Laury Sargeant if you are interested in learning more about this partnership.
A highlight of summer for the EYC is our 'church-family vacation' to Glory Ridge. "Make Work Worship!" is the slogan for this week filled with serving God through serving our neighbors in Madison County, NC and growing together as an intentional community of faith in Jesus Christ. Adults with a heart for Christian service and a desire for great fellowship and delicious food are encouraged to contact Fr. Tom about the possibility of being a chaperone.
Erasing the Lines
Erasing the Lines is a sumertime local mission experience for young people in 6th – 12th grades provided by Son Set Ministries. Participants work with several local agencies during the week and spend Monday through Thursday nights at Rochelle Middle School. The days are filled with service projects and getting to know other Christians from the community. The nights are filled with fun, games, worship, as well as some free time.
Adults are needed to serve as small group leaders, van drivers, and overnight chaperones. If you are interested, please contact Fr. Tom.
