2012 Report from Mission Team
Submitted by Carol Doss

 

The mission team statement is:  “To broaden the missional life of our church, both locally and globally, through increased awareness, education and service opportunities that connect with the work of God in the world.”  I have been compiling from many of you information regarding mission work done during 2012 so I could report to the congregation the many different types of missions the members of Peace Haven Baptist Church have done.  Missions encompass much more than just the monetary support that we have provided to our mission partners during the year.  What better way can we ‘serve’ as stated in our church mission statement than to respond to opportunities to help those in need.  Here is a list of the many ways our church has ‘done missions’ in 2012:
