How College Heights Baptist Church is Answering God's Call
God's call is to take His message into all the world. We, College Heights Baptist Church, take that message seriously. Missions activity has been, and continues to be, a special part of College Height's ministry.
We Pray--We maintain personal contact with seven full-time missionary families in order to pray for their specific ministry needs, their people groups, and their personal and spiritual needs. We pray for specific short-term missionaries and for God's workers in the ends of the earth.
We Give--We actively support international missions through the annual Lottie Moon Christmas offering, North American missions through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, and the Kansas/Nebraska missions through the Viola Webb offering. Our members are generous givers and each year we receive recognition from the Smokey Hill Baptist Association for being a "Top Giving Church" in our association.
We Go--Over the years we have sponsored a number of missionaries from within our church body who have served or are still serving in a variety of countries including: India, Chile, Peru, Eastern/Southern and Northern Africa, Central and South Asia and the Pacific Rim. Some of our missionary families have been on the field for more than 10 years, some have retired, and some are new arrivals on the field.
Over the years we have sent short-term mission teams to Omaha, NE to run a vacation Bible school on an Indian reservation; to St. Louis, MO for vacation Bible school in the inner city, to Kansas City, MO to work in soup kitchens; and to Chicago to work with inner-city youth. In our own backyard, we have sent a team to work with a trailer park ministry in Junction City, KS, and hold conversational English classes/Bible study for international students a tour church.
