Our Missions Team assists the FBC family in determining needs, and we actively participate in both monthly and annual projects to benefit the local Hopewell community, as well as projects which reach out to the state, nation, and around the world. There are mission opportunities for children, youth, and adults.
For more information on a specific project, or to share your desire to contribute, please contact Missions Group Leader, Valerie Caricofe.
