OUR WORLD MINISTRIES

We go into the world with our ministries- we reach the ends of the earth with our ministries:

Acts 1:8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when being a part of our ministries. We believe that reaching the world is exactly what Jesus said to do in the Great Commission.


MISSION TEAM

Each year, a mission team is opened up to the people of CFC and to the people who are feeling the call for the mission team.  A lot of planning and fundraising activities occur in the months leading up to the trip.  The people of CFC have been very open to the idea of mission teams, and have been very generous in support of the teams. 

In the past several years, we have made a commitment to send teams into different mission fields.  Each year, a different area is chosen.  Typically, we have done an international mission trip followed by a domestic mission. Some of our recent areas of focus have been: Roatan, Honduras; McAllen, Texas; Port-au-Prince and Titanyen, Haiti; Williamsport, Ohio; Choluteca, Honduras; and Peoria, Arizona --Southwest Indian Ministry Center (photo).

MISSIONARIES

Circleville First Church supports missionaries throughout the world through our denomination, and typically partner with World Gospel Mission.  Every 1-2 months, we have missionaries come to CFC while they are on home assignment, typically talking about the ministries that they are involved with while they work on raising financial support.  

Our church family has an opportunity to support these missionaries not only financially, but in prayer.  Also, the missionaries are sent birthday cards and/or anniversary cards that each member of the church has an opportunity to sign.  

For several years, there has been a large floor-to-ceiling map on the rear wall of the sanctuary overflow.  Each missionary/family is pictured and their location tagged on the map.

CHURCH EXTENSION

The church extension ministry is a CCCU denomination effort to establish or revitalize churches such as our growing church in Williamsport. You can be a part of this ministry by giving yearly in May or selecting Church Extension on our offering envelopes. For more information contact Cathy Marck.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Circleville First Church is proud to be a part of a great worldwide ministry with Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse. The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind through using gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world.

In November we come together to have a party, fill over 300 shoeboxes and pray over the children who will receive them. Boxes are filled for boys and girls separately ranging in age from 2-4, 5-9, and 10-14. Each month of the year is a needed item for the Shoeboxes.
