Mulberry Church of God and Mulberry Christian Academy have had the opportunity to be involved in missions locally and overseas. Students from the school have had numerous invitations to serve meals for conferences, special dinners and celebrations for the Church of God.
The students enjoy getting to serve and it shows in their attitude every time. Students and church members have had countless opportunities to pass out food, clothing and toiletries to local homeless people. The church has also served hot meals weekly, as an opportunity for those who are in need to be fed.
Mulberry Church of God has sent out groups to serve snow cones, pass out candy or whatever else we have in order to create chances to talk with people, pray with them and lead them to Jesus!
Community outreach is a HUGE part of Mulberry Church of God’s missions program!
The church sent a team to Jamaica in 2018. We had the pleasure of teaming together with a local church and reading God’s Word in the streets of Jamaica. The Bible Marathon allowed people in the community to hear the Word read morning until night as well as have the opportunity to have prayer for themselves and their needs.
We are currently planning a trip back to Managua, Nicaragua. We were last there in 2015. We established relationships with a school there called Lighthouse Christian Academy. This school provides a Christian education, as well as a hot lunch to children in the area.
There are many children there on scholarships, provided by individuals and churches. The children on scholarship wouldn’t be able to attend a school of this magnitude if it wasn’t for the sponsorship. Mulberry Church of God is involved in this sponsorship program.
In 2016, the church and school joined together to send a 40-foot container, filled with items for the school in Managua. The container was filled with student desks, teacher desks, computers, bicycles, bibles, curriculum and hundreds of boxes of clothes.
We continue to hear about the items that have been distributed throughout Nicaragua. We look forward to our next opportunity to serve overseas!
