OUTREACH & MISSIONS
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Operation Christmas Child
Be part of this worldwide effort to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need worldwide. Help grow the Kingdom of God even in places where the Gospel has never been heard! Operation Christmas Child boxes and instruction brochures will be available in the lobbies at both campuses. Packed boxes need to be returned to Spring Lake Church by
Sunday, November 17.
Local Outreach PROJECTS

Howe Community Thanksgiving Dinner & Spring Cookout
Spring Lake Church is blessed to sponsor and serve Community Meals and participate in supply drives at Howe Elementary School.
Global Missions Projects & Partners
Orphans of God Project
Thank you to everyone who has supported the Orphans of God Project by donating to our Malawi Fund, praying for the orphans or adopting one of these 300+ children over the past 8 years! Annual support cost for one child is $10/month or a one-time donation of $120. Each `adoption' contribution provides 2 meals a day, clothes, education, Christian training and school supplies for one of these precious children.
Africa Hope Run Update
Church, it has been a great run! We want to thank all who have joined us over the past nine years in support of this awesome cause! Spring Lake is still supporting orphans in Funsani and Lisungwe, Malwai through the Orphans of God initiative. The Africa Hope Run though, has been discontinued. You’ll hear more about ways to continue to support the Orphans of God project around Christmas time.
