ANNUAL REPORT 2019 MISSION CAUSES
Mission giving is supported in various ways in various churches. Some churches concentrate on a few major projects while other churches spread their mission support amongst many smaller needs. To allow us to reflect on our total mission giving and support overall, below reflects where and how we met our calling to mission work. The first group is mission projects we supported strictly monetarily. The second group is mission projects we supported with time, energy, material and other needs including some individual funding. It should be noted that while this report is for the church as a whole, the Sunday School participated in several of these programs in their mission studies which are reflected in the Sunday School report.
