Local Missions: ESL

Do you have an interest in helping the foreigner among us?  Is God calling you to spread His love and word to people from other nations right here in Montgomery County?  The ESL program run by Covenant Life Church is in deep need of teachers, classroom assistants, and child care providers to help with their program. They have a waiting list of students and are short staffed with current classes.  If interested, please contact Pam Wilbur ([email protected]).

Missions: Podcasts Are Live!

The Missions Committee has interviewed several of our missionaries and included these as podcasts on our website. These are concise and informative interviews! Check them out!

Afghan Family Needs

The Afghan family we have been part of helping is in need of home furnishings. All basic donated furniture items are needed such as beds, dressers, coffee tables, couches, accent chairs, kitchen tables and chairs, etc. If you are interested in helping the family in different ways, please also respond. We would like to be a blessing to these families in as many ways as possible, showing them the love of Christ.

Purpose of Missions

To assist Shady Grove in fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord, the Missions Ministry Center will:

  • Nurture the development of a Chirst-like heart for the world.
  • Provide an understanding of the work of missionaries as they bring men and women, girls and boys, to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ locally, and internationally.
  • Encourage our congregation and provide opportunities for all to be involved in direct support of the needs, concerns, and activities of our missionaries and mission programs.
  • Send out missionaries from our congregation.

Missions Committee Meetings

The Missions Committee meets at the church on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm.

How you can be involved

  1. PRAY, lifting up to the Lord those called to the mission field and provide a protective hedge around these families. Read the Bulletin – The Light, the prayer Guide and the Mission Bulletin Board for prayer needs.
  2. Be a financial provider to assure that those called to be missionaries are provided the resources to meet the call.
  3. Be a Point Person, our liaison to one specific missionary family/ministry. Inform the congregation of their special needs, concerns, and activities.
  4. Help plan and carry out our annual mission conference and White Fields Mission Offering.
  5. Be a Short Term Missionary. We have sent teams and individuals to Costa Rica, Haiti, Honduras, Jordan, Mexico, Mississippi, North Carolina, Peru, Philippines, Ukraine, West Virginia, Yemen, and Zambia. These short-term missions provides an opportunity to be introduced to, and be a part of what Christ is doing around the world.
  6. Join the Mission efforts of the Ministry Center Leadership team to help guide the cooperative Mission efforts of the congregation.
