Summer Mission 2016 - Club 180
Each year we at Salt and Light personally participate in a sort term mission trip. This year we went to Cumberland Kentucky to serve at a youth camp in a struggling community. We will be serving along side Sligo Baptist Church and a The Bridge Church. We helped in some construction projects in the area, and serving the children of the community there. We helped lead worship songs, craft projects, games and more for an entire week.
For 3 years we have sent a mission team to Tijuana Mexico for a mission at an orphanage. We take needed supplies for the orphanage. We also lead a vacation bible school for the children in the orphanage and throughout the local neighborhood. We distribute food in an impoverished area of the city. This mission is not an easy one, especially when our team has to come home. We are not going to make a trip this year, but you may still help support the orphanage and the mission at Salt and Light throughout the year to come.
Operation Christmas Child
Who doesn't love Christmas? We especially love Christmas, so much so that we are preparing for it all year long. It is the goal of Salt and Light Baptist Church to prepare 120 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. We collect a new item each month, which we house at the church and will come together to pack in late fall. You have a chance to bring a Christmas gift for a needy child every single Sunday at Salt and Light Baptist Church.
Salt and Light Baptist Church is affiliated with and supports the Kentucky Baptist Convention and the Cooperative Program. This is a program where Kentucky Baptist churches donate to missions, both local and foreign and make a bigger impact than any one church could do alone. A percentage of all that is taken up at Salt and Light is given to the KBC, and you can always designate your gifts specifically to that fund.
