Mission Trips

Short Term Mission Trips

This past summer we went on two mission trips to Puerto Rico and Beverly, Kentucky. These mission opportunities were open to adults, families, and youth. Contact Pastor Patina Ripkey for more information on upcoming mission opportunities and how you can serve.

Project: To assist the people of this poor rural area improve and maintain their family residence where there is need

June 2-7: Puerto Rico (Thirst Missions)

This is a great video taken of several mission teams who served in Puerto Rico, including First Church. You will see some familiar faces!

Here are some pictures of our time while serving in Puerto Rico:
