MISSIONS

SMPC members support this mission by sponsoring children, making donations to OFCB, and praying for their success in a difficult environment.

You could have opportunities such as observing the children’s classrooms, helping high school students learn English, visiting the medical clinic and the new agronomy program, walking to a local market, seeing how Haitians live and work, and hiking into the beautiful mountains.

For information on how you can participate in this rewarding experience with our Haitian friends, please contact David Nichols at david5cents@aol.com.

About the ministry

The SMPC Missions Committee is primarily concerned with our outreach program to support the OFCB Christian Mission in Bayonnais, Haiti. Our Haiti connection dates from the church's beginnings when Actionnel Fleurisma, who founded the OFCB Mission, lived among us and was one of SMPC's charter members.

The Missions Committee encourages church members to participate in the Haiti student sponsorship program. We ‘sponsor" school children for the sum of $35 per month, the money being is used to pay teachers' salaries, buy supplies, and feed the students a nourishing meal each day - sometimes the only meal they receive.

STOP HUNGER NOW

Thank you to all who participated in this year's Stop Hunger Now event! 202 participants, young, old, and in between, packed 20,000 meals in just under 2 hours.

If you would like to help out, we are still accepting donations to offset the cost of the meals (25 cents a meal, $5,000 for 20,000 meals). Drop a check in the offering plate referencing Stop Hunger Now in the memo line.
