Missions · Reaching the World for Christ
WE KNOW, WE GO, WE GROW!
The Heart of Stroudwater is Missions. Because we KNOW about the new life in CHRIST, we are compelled to GO and tell others. It is this process that produces GROWTH in our spiritual lives.
OUR MISSIONS PHILOSOPHY
Jesus teaches in Acts Chapter 1:8 "... you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth". Missiologist Ralph Winters writes: "Today that translates into Christians sharing the gospel in their home city, their state/region, and in cross-cultural missions experiences."
In an effort to fulfill Christ's instructions STROUDWATER has designed ministries that address each one of the geographic levels outlined in the Acts 1:8 passage.
- STROUDWATER FOOD PANTRY: OUR CITY - is represented by our work with the food insecure through the STROUDWATER FOOD PANTRY. This amazing ministry feeds 40-70 families weekly from the greater Portland area. Join a team of volunteers who do food recovery and distribution to meet the needs of the Food Insecure in our Community.
- WASHINGTON COUNTY: OUR STATE- Each summer 20-40 volunteers travel to the one if the poorest counties in the United States. Here we repair homes and give hope to people in need. Join this team for a week that will change your life.
- GUATEMALA MISSIONS: TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH - Since 1990 Stroudwater has been engaging in annual Cross-cultural missions trips. Each trip includes Dental, Construction, Education, and special Projects teams. Currently we are working in El Dormido, Guatemala bringing Christ's love to hundreds of lives. We have a place on our team for you!
