One of the things which energizes our congregation is our mission trip emphasis every year. Our church has sponsored numerous missions to Mexico, Belize, Galveston county and the Houston Food Bank as well as the Appalachians, Colorado, Washington DC, the Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, Florida, New Orleans and Albuquerque.
The focus is on sharing the love of Christ in both spirit and concrete action.
Not only do the youth and adult participants come back strengthened in their faith and compassion toward others, but in many cases, have changed the whole direction in their life vocations.
Recently, the mission trip participants have sent daily journal-like postcards back to individuals in the congregation which nurtures an even stronger connection between the mission trip participants and the congregation’s ministry in Rockwall.
