Mission giving in our community and beyond our local church is important to us. We are a medium sized church with an average attendance of 180 in our combined worship services. We provide financial help to local organizations throughout the year such as:

— The Community Care Center

— Good Samaritan House

— Phoenix Crisis Center

— Faith in Action

...and many other organizations within the Methodist Conference and beyond.

Rev. Delbert Groves and his wife Sandy are our new missionaries!   

Rev.  Groves is a United Methodist missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries based in Kitwe, Zambia. His wife, Sandy is also a missionary;  they serve at the New Life Center.

The center, established in 2001 through Delbert and Sandy’s efforts, has grown into a resource for the young United Methodist Provisional Conference of Zambia. It has numerous outreach ministries, including New Life Press, health education, PET Zambia, a computer lab, English instructions in new church construction, and other training ministries.

Addition information is available online at The couple also hosts volunteer-in-mission work teams.





Rev. Delbert and Sandy Groves are the United Methodist missionaries we help support in Zambia, Africa. Rev. Groves reflects on his work in Africa as “Christ not only saves us from our sinful, selfish nature, but He heals the body and mind so we can discover all that He has for us to live out a new life filled with purpose and hope. I love watching God work!”

Delbert and Sandy have four adult sons: James, Nicholas, Seth, and Nathan, three daughter-in-laws: Kellie, Lisa, and Amanda, as well as four grandchildren: Charles, William, Taylor, and Del.

July’s loose change collection for the 1st  and 8th  will go to  Red Bird Mission, located in the Appalachian Mountains. Today the need remains critical in this isolated, rural distressed area. Chronic poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing, and rugged mountainous terrain provide obstacles to a fuller life for the residents of this area.  

July 15 & 22 will go to Elementary Grades 1,2.  – Our donations will help provide school supplies, toiletries, and whatever else that is needed for the coming school year.

The change collection on July 29th will go to radio station FM 99.1 JOY. Tune in to Joy FM for contemporary Christian music. This station helps provide encouragement for your daily walk with Christ and is wholly funded by donations.  

August 5th & 12th Loose Change collection will go to Midwest Distribution Center. The Center collects and distributes goods all over the world for those in need.

August 19th & 26th will go to our local Good Samaritan House. The GSH enriches the lives of women and children who are experiencing homelessness by offering them opportunities to become self-sufficient while supporting them in a loving Christian environment.
