We continue to support missionaries around the world or those working with foreign nationals in our country.

Matthew 28:18

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Mills Memorial Congregation strives daily to fulfill the great commission. We support missions: locally, nationally and around the world!

Our Mission support comes through Faith Promise. Faith Promise is a second mile giving; a promise between the giver and God to support his missionaries and mission programs. Faith Promises are given in late February or early March as the Annual Mission Conference ends. Donations are taken on a one-time, weekly, monthly basis and can begin at any time during the year if you are new to the program.

Our annual Mission Conference is held the first weekend in March. Missionaries on furlough or those from nearby mission projects are asked to give a presentation over the span of two days to help both Adults and Children understand the importance of mission work. This gives us a time each year to review our role in missions here and around the world.
