First Baptist Church Henryville seeks to offer a balance of opportunities for mission teams to serve in both the United States and other countries. We are currently trying to sponsor a major church wide mission trip every year. We hope to be able to alternate every other year between a mission effort in the USA and a bigger triip out of the country.
In February of 2010 a team from our church went to India, working with churches there to spread the gospel. Later that summer another team also went partnered with Ocoee Outreach in Tennessee ministering through churches in local areas and helping with construction. In June 2011, we partnered again with Ocoee Outreach for a mission effort in Tennessee. A group of twelve team members worked alongside local churches to remodel and repair homes for families and through that work they shared the gospel with with an entire community.
In the summer of 2012 we will be working with Baptist Medical and Dental International and parterning with Woodlawn Baptist Church for a short term mission trip to the Central American nation of Honduras. We encourage you to explore the other Missions pages to learn more about what how we are participating in missions and how you can be involved.
