Our goal at First Fort Mill is to help as many of you as possible exercise your spiritual gifts through service. We are constantly looking for ways to be involved in our community, our state, our nation and around the world. We try to be involved in the ministries that are close to the hearts of our members. We also consider the words of our Savior as He challenged His disciples to "Go, and make disciples of all peoples .... "
Puerto Rico - September 2019
Several members of our church went on a mission trip to Puerto Rico, including Carl Catoe, Chuck and Linda DeMent and Johnny Caruso. We had a total number of 9 people 6 men and 3 women. The reason for going was to help with disaster relief efforts from hurricane Maria. Although it was 2 years to the date since the storm that we were there, there are still 30,000 people with traps on their roofs or no roof at all. We replaced a roof on a house and put up the walls and enclosed the house so it was livable again. While the men worked on the house the women served the indigent by cleaning their houses and sharing the gospel when the opportunity presented itself. It was a great trip. The house was completed and some received Christ. If you are interested in going on such a trip check with Carl Catoe, Johnny or Shannon Ford. We will take another trip in early November.
We believe every Christian should be involved in the lives of others and we want to help you do that. We offer a multiplicity of opportunities that will allow anyone to be on mission. If you are new to serving we will partner with you and walk side by side with you through the entire project.
A list of 2020 mission opportunities is coming soon.
