There are many ways to get involved in Missions at King’s Grant. This is a small sample of the opportunities.
Faith Works Coalition Projects:
Nine people from King’s Grant partnered with the Faith Works Coalition and went to work on the home of an elderly man in Portsmouth. We ripped out a man’s kitchen in order to replace the floor that was sagging terribly. After lunch we had three of our group stick around and install the floor joists.
The King’s Builders – Construction Mission Trip
The King’s Builders always take a week during the summer to construct a church building somewhere in America. It is one of the best weeks you can spend with a group of fellow believers; fun, exhausting, rewarding. Donald Downs is the main coordinator. Will you give your vacation time to make a difference for the Kingdom? Here is a link to get more information.
Each third Saturday in October we share the love of Jesus through hands-on ministry and community impact mission projects. Dozens of projects have been accomplished through the years. Check out the pictures of our community in action in our community. [ get details and see past videos here ]
Catalyst Resources International:
We have partnered with CRI over the years and regularly send teams to Guatemala to build homes, build stoves, feed children, and do whatever is needed in two orphanages. It is a blessing to serve God and others, and work along side Fontaine and Paula Greene, the local missionaries and founders of CRI. [ Get more info on CRI ]
Union Mission Ministries:
The Men of Steel went to the Union Mission’s new location to help ready the place for the move to their new location. This group was the primary focus of our Operation Inasmuch on October 17, 2009.
Operation Christmas Child:
Each year we help to share the joy of Christmas and the joy of Christ to needy children throughout the world, who otherwise would not experience the giving spirit of Christmas. The church members have been known to provide over 180 shoe boxes!
Judeo-Christian Outreach Center:
Adults as well as youth help to provide and serve food for those in need at the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center (JCOC) in Virginia Beach. Contact Jennifer Garland for more information.
Red Cross Blood Drives:
Little Neck community churches help the Red Cross facilitate a blood drive in our community. To alleviate waiting in line you are able to schedule an appointment by signing up at the welcome center table or by calling the church office. Signups begin about two weeks prior to the event. The location moves every two months through the six Little Neck area churches. The drives are always 1:00-7:00pm. Contact Karen Rowell for more information.
Winter Shelter at King’s Grant:
The membership here at King’s Grant Baptist Church plan and execute a shelter one week each year for those who do not have a home. This effort is coordinated through the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center. Contact Scott Chafee for more information.
We serve God through assisting to serve others after a natural or national disaster. If you would like to contribute to a disaster relief project, you can make your check payable to King’s Grant Baptist Church and designate “Disaster Relief ” in the bottom corner. The church has aided others all across the country, including those affected by hurricane Katrina, and more recently hurricanes Ike, Edouard, Rita, and Matthew. Virginia Baptists have recently responded to rain floods in West Virginia, Nashville, North Carolina, and Florida. Many people in the congregation are trained to respond to a regional disaster, and are ready to mobilize when the need arises. Contact Billie and Eddie Todd for more information.
