Missions

At FBC, we are committed to spreading the message of Jesus Christ, both in our community and around the world. We have several mission opportunities where you can find a place to serve. 
 
 

"You are the Light” - Family Mission Project

 
Each year, we go out into our community and assist homeowners in the Farmington area with minor repairs, painting, or cleaning around their homes. In the past, we have had between 50-75 projects to complete within a week. Recently, "You Are the Light" changed to a weekend mission project in the fall instead of a full week in the summer.
 
To volunteer, or if you know someone who needs help, please contact our church office or complete a green volunteer form available in the foyer leading up to the weekend. 
 

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

 
Our church is a major supporter of Samaritan's Purse "Operation Christmas Child" each year. Not only do some of our members support and organize churches in the Southeast Missouri area, but they also facilitate our building as a regional collection center for the shoeboxes. 
 
This year's Collection Sunday for our church's shoeboxes will be November 15, 2020. Collection week for members of the community and other churches to drop off at our collection center will be November 16-23, 2020.

International Mission Trips

 
Every year, we take small teams of our members to do mission projects in other countries. Over the past few years, we have partnered with churches in Belarus, Guatemala, and Cuba. If you would like to participate in an upcoming mission trip, please contact the church office. 
 

MIssions through giving

 
Another way we support various missions is through our budget and by special offerings. To learn more about the various mission projects we support, please contact our church office.
