Our Sunday School students live out our Church's mission by actively participating in mission work.

2014 - Art Auction/Ice Cream social to benefit local mission team from the La Tortuga Foundation's trip to remote Mexican villages. The team provides healthcare and supportive services such as setting up clinics and libraries. Our students raised over $700 to purchase toys, clothing and school supplies for the children from these villages.

2015 - Our students created the "Heart Café" serving a pasta lunch and holding a live auction to raise money for a local community member hospitalized 9 months awaiting a heart transplant. This effort grew remarkably involving other local groups such as the Boy Scouts and 4H groups. We raised $5000.00 to assist this young family with medical and travel expenses.

2016/2017 - Each of the Sunday School classes were assigned a month in which they would get the youth offering to use towards a cause of their choice. Many classes participated in additional activities to spread the word of their cause throughout the entire congregation. They developed a skit about the homeless, held bake sales and donut days to raise additional funds. As a result, students provided toys for hospitalized children at Christmas, pajamas for children at the local homeless shelter and food and supplies for local animal shelters.
