The Missions Team at Central follows the church’s mission statement: ”Connecting People to Christ". We do that through many mission opportunities for children, youth, and adults.
We serve our community here in Rogers: Meals on Wheels, Grace Food Pantry, Grace Community Meal, and Bonnie Grimes Elementary School. Around Arkansas we serve through Habitat for Humanity, Ozark Mission Project, and the Wesley Foundation at the U of A. Projects around the U.S. include trips to Ship Rock, NM, Navajo Reservation, the Red Bud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, Hurricane Katrina cleanup in Mississippi and Louisiana, and the UMCOR Relief Center in Baldwin, Louisiana. We currently have a long-standing relationship with our sister church, Tuetal Sur Iglesia de Restoracion, in Alajuela, Costa Rica.
For further information on any of our mission programs, please contact Les Oliver, Minister on Missions.
