Coronavirus mission response
As a response to the Coronavirus, we implemented a few new mission opportunities to support our community during this uncertain time. As part of this response, we are serving weekly meals with our ministry partner, Mosaic Ministries, planning a Red Cross Blood Drive, and had a food drive with the Boy Scouts on March 24.
Group mission Trips: workcamp
Group Mission Trips has decided to postpone the Workcamp until next year. Check back for more information and updates as we get them.
Compassion International has been helping children through sponsorship for 66 years, and has helped over 1.9 million children across the globe to receive support. At First Pres Maumee, our congregation sponsors over 40 children from around the world.
We also recently partnered with Compassion International for our Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic, which took place February 13-19, 2020. We had 15 members of our congregation that took part in this life changing experience and met the children they or the church sponsor through Compassion. You can hear from some of these members and their experience in the DR in our First Pres Feature here.
