Sharing the Joy of Christ

Foreign Missions

John Wesley said it best "All the world is my parish."  Riverchase's Foreign Outreach programs focus on being open to the world around us by providing opportunities for mission experiences, sharing the mission story with others and exploring ways to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ. 

Haiti Mission in Grand Grove
Haitian orphanage child sponsorship and mission trips in coordination with the Hands and Feet Project. Mission trips in 2015 are planned for May and October.
The Hope Community Centre in Kenya
Founded in 1997 by our friend, Lucy Gacheru as a way to provide for the needs of homeless children and young adults. For more information on child sponsorships, visit www.hopecckenya.org.
SIFAT (Servants In Faith And Technology)

UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers in Mission)
UMVIM exists to promote, encourage, and enable Christians to exemplify "Christian Love in Action" through short-term mission service at home and abroad. Visit www.umvim.org for more information or to join a team. 
Isaiahsixeight (Jamaica Mission)
The Isaiahsixeight project was launched in 1994 by members of RUMC as a way to meet the needs of residents in rural parts of eastern Jamaica. RUMC will be sending a team to Jamaica in July 2015. Visit www.isaiahsixeight.org for more information.
