Young life

"Show-Me Every Kid" PRAY FOR ONE MINUTE!

Pray for the unreached students in the school of your choice. By “unreached” we mean the students who do not attend any church or youth-group-type of gathering.  Please pray! and then text me your name and the school you prayed for! 

Thank you!  Pete Fritsch (417) 576-8418

International Fellowship

Local international students find the love of Jesus through a simple meal provided by folks they don't even know as they gather to learn about the Bible that they have never read before. If you or your Life Group would like to be a vital part of this ministry and volunteer to bring a meal for one evening this Spring on any Monday or Thursday night please contact Suzanne at .

Cherish Kids

We are in need of people willing to baby sit for foster families from a few hours to 7-10 days at a time. In January, we will hold a training that will focus on, our unique needs foster kids may have. Get connected by contacting Lea Anne Ellison
