Being involved in a missions trip gives you the great opportunity to see the work of God on the mission field. Our Missions Committee seeks to encourage people to take such trips and helps to organize these special events. They are currently working on plans to create short-term missions trips for our adults so they can experience firsthand the great work of God in other places.

Many of our adults have already taken short-term service trips to places like Kyrgyzstan, Alaska, Thailand, India, Burkina Faso and Ukraine.

Short-term mission trips can involve:

  • construction on a building project
  • evangelism
  • helping with Vacation Bible School
  • building relationships with the local people
Short-Term Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic
July 22  -29, 2017

In July, 10 people will be going to the Dominican Republic, where among other things, they will build a small house for someone living in a leper colony. 

The team still needs help for the following:
  • $5500 to pay for materials. If you would like to contribute please indicate by marking your donation with the words Dominican Republic Trip.
  • Transportation to the Philadelphia Airport for the team on Saturday, July 22. They will be leaving GBC that morning at 4 am.  We will also need help on the return journey on Saturday, July 29 (time TBA). Contact Pastor Steve if you are able to help.
  • Crayola Crayons & Sidewalk Chalk to give to the kids they will be serving during VBS. Crayons should be an 8-count box and be Crayola brand (other brands tend to melt during travel). Chalk should be a small box. Place them in the labeled box near the Welcome Desk in the back of the sanctuary by July 16th.   
  • Prayer!
