Do you feel like God is calling you to get involved? We have programs available that just may be what you are looking for.
Here are some of the ways you can be involved.
The Missionary Department helps facilitate ministry teams that minister on the field for one to two weeks, giving members the opportunity to experience missions firsthand while serving alongside missionaries and national Christians. Whether you want to do construction, fix things, lead a Vacation Bible School or kids club, take care of orphans, provide medical care, play basketball, cook, or pray, there's a team for you!
Kid Power is all about involving children in the Great Commission! It is a monthly ministry program and cirriculum that teaches kids about what missionaries do, how to pray for missionaries, how they can support missionaries around the world, and how they can serve in their own community. Each year, children from across the denomination band together to raise money for the Kid Power Offering for missions. Kids collect spare change and donations throughout the year and then join their offering with offerings from other churches. The Kid Power Offering regularly raises $80,000 - $100,000 annually.
Our February Sacrifice offering has been replaced by our new Christmas offering for missions named our Advent Offering. Each church is asked to receive this offering sometime during the Advent season. It will be used just as the February Sacrifice offering was. That offering covered about 20 percent of the operating cost of our Missionary Department and provided our Disaster Relief Fund.

Life Investments are a gift of $1500 or more which is given in the name of a specific missionary. The gift is invested in interest yielding accounts. That interest is withdrawn semi-annually and used in ministry by the designated missionary. The principal is never withdrawn, so the interest continues to give to missions for years to come.
Mission Minded Men
Mission Minded Men (MMM) is an organization of men throughout the CCCU who are committed to spreading the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth. Organized into chapters through local churches MMM makes an impact by praying, serving, fund raising and joining work teams to mission fields.
Each year MMM hosts a banquet with a major offering to support a specific project on one of the CCCU and WGM fields. Annual projects in the past have assisted in building churches, schools, Bible schools, and medical facilities.
