Ministry to Our Samaria
If you feel God is calling you to stretch your boundaries and get out of your comfort zone, we encourage you to consider one of our Samaria ministires. No shots are required, but you will definitely experience a world you are not familiar with and be blessed beyond measure. Our two key focal points for Samaria missions are Fort Yates, North Dakota, and Piedras Negras, Mexico.
Join us as we minister to the children, teens, and adults living on the Standing Rock Reservation in the Dakotas. We take two trips to North Dakota each year. The first is in early June, when we host two Vacation Bible Schools: one in Fort Yates, and one in Cannon Ball. Our other trip to North Dakota is in early- to mid-August, when the primary goal is to host an Operation Back to School at the elementary school in Fort Yates. We enjoy building relationships with the faculty, and we continue to strive to find ways to minister to this area. Do not miss the opprotunity to share the love of Christ to the proud and beautiful Native American Indian population in North Dakota. You will be forever changed and blessed.
May of 2014 marked the three-year anniversary of our own Lance and Line Adams being on mission in Ft. Yates. They have seen and have been instrumental in several changes which have happened since that time. The community gardens and soup kitchen have been relocated. Lance became the Master Gardener, and the soup kitchen, which serves all the needy in the community during the winter months, was moved to FBC Ft. Yates. Lance and Line assist in the cooking and serving of the meal each Monday during those months. The “kids club” has made great strides by feeding, loving, and involving children in many different ways.
We are looking at new strategies and better ways to reach the people on Standing Rock Reservation with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We would love to have you join us in this great opportunity to experience missions in action. It's a good trip for children, teens, families, and seniors. Next trip(s) to North Dakota:
- June 13-20, 2015
- August 2-8, 2015 (Operation Back to School)
We are proud to partner with Iglesia Bautista La Trinidad De Piedras Negras to help serve the area of Piedras Negras with the love and gospel of Jesus Christ. Because this church operates a school serving pre-k through 12th grade, our partnership with them is complemented by the strong community of educators in our own congregation.
Our ongoing mission efforts in Piedras Negras include ministry in each of these areas:
Vacation Bible School
- Prayer walking
- Ministry to orphanage
- Clown ministry
- Puppet ministry
- Evening rallies
- Food & shoe distribution
- Ministry at the church school
Please note that a passport or passport card is now required in order to enter/exit
Due to recent increases in violence along the border, our ongoing mission efforts in Piedras Negras are evolving. In the interest of safety, church trips to the area have been suspended. We are pursuing alternative strategies that will allow us to continue our partnership in Mexico until such a time that we are able to resume group trips.
