Welcome to the Damascus Road Community Church Missions Website. Our church believes that in our world, a world full of poverty, hunger, hurt and need that we should do everything we can to help.
The people we help and come to know in Honduras, South Africa and India need more than food and clothing. Their hunger is for something more than food. They are hungry for God and that is why we go. We meet their physical needs as an expression of our love for Jesus Christ who said "'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." And when they ask us why we would leave our homes and come to help them we tell them because God wants us to.
In addition to our international mission work, I have recently learned that there is also a local mission team known as Helping Hands led by Bernie Thompson. In the near future I will be making adjustments to the website to accomodate them.
Here is a brief description I received from Nancy: "They are involved in local projects… mostly construction/renovation projects for church members and are also running trips to do hurricane relief in Gulf Port, Mississippi.
