Home Church has many opportunities for members to show our love for Jesus by using the many gifts that each of us has received. Our worldwide mission work is increasing and needs more volunteers. If you are interested in participating in or learning more about world mission opportunities, please contact the church office by email or phone Jane Shore at 336-722-6171 and she will have the appropriate person contact you. Currently our global mission work is centered on the following:
Albania – Home Church has a partnership with Moravians in Albania and is providing financial support to the Bathore Project, an outreach which serves an extremely poor area in Albania. The project provides food, clothes and life skills education. Home Church members are planning a trip to build face-to-face relationships. A youth camper exchange is also in the planning.
Family to Family – Family to Family is another aspect of support to Albanian Moravian ministries, this program provides an opportunity for Home Church members to pledge financial support for food for a family in Bathore, an extremely poor area in Albania. Cost per month is $30 for family of 3 or less, $40 for family of 4 or 5 members and $50 for a family of 5 plus members.
Blum Visiting Scholars – Home Church is working to provide a “construction internship” in 2016 for two Tanzanian Moravians who will be in Winston-Salem from late May to early August to intern with the local Frank L. Blum Construction Company. A hospitality team will support the local needs of the two men and help to include them in the life and ministry of Home Church.
Moravian Missions – These mission activities include educational opportunities to help our members learn more about ongoing mission work, praying and planning for the people and workers in the mission areas and providing financial support through fundraising activities. Opportunities for mission trips may develop for one of these areas. Those interested in global mission work are always welcome to participate. Presently, the focus is on Moravian work in Cuba, Peru, Sierra Leone and Western Tanzania.
