Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

The WEBC Missions Team was organized in effort to lead the church in its missions effort. This ministry is a “whosoever will” ministry meaning that anyone with a heart for missions is welcome to serve on the Missions Team. Our Missions Team has been delegated the responsibility of establishing specific missions goals for special missions offerings and plans to increase the goals at a rate of 10% annually, trusting that God will meet those goals through His faithful people.
The Missions Team oversees the various missions efforts of the church and also plans local and stateside missions events, North American Missions trips, and international missions trips. As AWEBC develops a heart for missions, the missions team will plan both small and large missions opportunities to impact the kingdom of God.

Operation: in as much

Our WEBC Missions Committee's "Operation In As Much" focus this year will be sharing God's love with the migrant workers who work with local farmers such as Shane Varnell. In addition to sharing the gospel, we plan to give each worker a bag of essential items. Items will be collected during the first four Sundays in May. Collection boxes will be located in the vestibules and outside the Fellowship Hall. All items should be individual sizes that can be packed in large zip-locked bags. You can donate T-shirts (sizes S, M, or L), towels (new or gently used), and washcloths anytime during May.

The collection schedule for other items is:
Sunday, May 2 - bar soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet paper, deodorant
Sunday, May 9 - small laundry detergent and small bleach (we suggest Dollar Tree type sizes)
Sunday, May 16 - mask, hand sanitizer (about 2 oz. size)
Sunday, May 23 - nabs (peanut butter crackers), bottle water, hard candy

If you prefer to donate money to purchase items, contact the Mission Team Chairperson - Dan Bingham - binghamdan@ymail.com
