Life on Mission

Our Mission Team encompasses the physical and spiritual needs of the church. They develop and manage programs , respond to benevolent needs within the church and community, work closely with our local Community Needs Agency, and plan missions trips locally and internationally.

The missions and missionaries that we support are listed below with their contact information. A printed booklet is also available in the church office or you can download one here.

A Big Thank You

Thank you for your help with Operation Christmas Child. Your church was able to donate over 400 items plus $212 to help us with postage! Thank you! -Christ Alive! Community Church 

Christ Alive! has invited us to their OCC packing party on Sunday, November 11th at 9:15AM @ 9320 W. US Rte. 150, Edwards, IL. Refreshments will be provided. See Dana Mareachen with any questions.


    Not everyone can pack up all of their belongings and become career missionaries, and not everyone can go on short-term mission trips. But ALL of us can support missions in one way or another. It's so important to do this! Because whether you go on a mission trip to another country or support missions from right where you live, you'll find that you will expand the kingdom of Jesus by doing so.
