Your mission team strives to carry out our role as a missional church. We support our various mission partners through your giving and seek to communicate their needs to you. We also organize annual events such as the Turkey Fund and our Fair Trade Festival. We sponsor mission events and trips. Our goal is to dedicate 10% of congregational giving annually to missions. Please become involved by calling the church office at: (208) 667-8446.
