The Bible teaches that we should take the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the Earth. When we hear that, we often think: Mission Trips. Mission Trips are great, but at Connection, everything we do is outreach. From our weekly worship experience to helping the homeless find a place to stay, we understand the message of Jesus is for anyone and everyone.
The One & One Project is how we fund majority of our outreach efforts in both our local community and throughout the world. Wondering how? Check out our One & One website for more details on how we’re changing our communities.
There are times when people within our church deal with difficult circumstances and need our help. Our Connect Groups offer people an environment to learn, grow, and care for each other. So, when people come across tough situations, it’s their Connect Group that rallies together to help. If you’re not currently connected in a Connect Group, and want to be, please follow this link to learn more or sign up.
At our Statesboro Campus we offer a Transitional Housing Program to help people get back on their feet. There’s an old saying that goes something like this: “Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime.” Sure we can pay someone’s light bill to help them out, but what happens the next month? Our heart is to come alongside people, teach them life skills (i.e. how to budget, how to interview for a job, etc) and grow them in their faith through this program. Often times people don’t need a hand-out, but a hand-up.
The body of Christ all has their specific role to play and we believe we are better together. There are great organizations and ministries that serve people in incredible ways in our communities and each year we partner with these agencies financially so they can continue reaching and serving more people. We don’t believe we have to do it all at Connection, and when we see organizations meeting real needs in our communities, we want to come alongside and support them in their efforts.
Each year we also send mission teams to various places like Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and more. These trips take place various times throughout the year and last anywhere from 7 to 10 days. We also partner with ministries like Cafe 1040 to connect people who feel called to becoming full time missionaries abroad.
