Children on Mission

I love watching our church using their passion to disciple others. Let me introduce you to Christy Warren who serves our Mission Kids on Wednesday nights. “When I was a child, I heard missionaries speak at my church. Some of the missionaries even spent the night in our home. “I’ve spent a lot of my adult life trying to share my early love of missions with children. It’s a joy to see children’s faces on Wednesday evenings at Rocky Creek…

Short-terms missions seems like a unique, exciting, and hands-on way to get involved in Kingdom work, but should you really do it? Here are a few reasons why you should (or shouldn’t)…

The Difference a Study Bible Can Make in Prison

Weeks later, I received a letter that floored me.  His gratitude was overwhelming, but his perspective was convicting. When was the last time you were this grateful for having a copy of God’s Word?

He gladly accepted the change of plans, and we made preparations…

My Brothers, the Overcomers

If you don’t know who the Overcomers are, they are a 27-week, addiction recovery program with a twelve-step, Christian-based curriculum. The program offers group and individual counseling, Bible study, devotional services, classroom instruction, and seminars.

Joyful Ornaments 2017

The Janet Danner Joyful Ornament Fund was founded on the vision and many talents of local women, seeking the will of God. Through His gifts, we have been able to bless other women that are battling cancer with the proceeds of our hand painted Christmas ornaments. It is our desire to serve these women by assisting with their medical expenses and other daily life needs. Joyful Ornaments 2017 from SAILWIND on Vimeo. Don’t miss our “Accelerating Hope Car Show” that benefits this ministry.
