GET INVOLVED

HOST AN OFF-SITE EVENT

imagejpeg_0 4.JPG

LET US BRING THE MISSION TO YOU

We have 4 off-site event options that you can host at your church or organization.

Click on the event you are interested in hosting to learn more.

  • You supply the space, tables, and volunteers and we will bring all the supplies to you (or you can collect the supplies yourself).

  • Off-site mission events connect congregations, grow teams closer together, and deepen discipleship. Just like going on a mission trip, hosting an off-site event creates a space where walls are torn down, community is shared, and memories are made, all while actively being the hands and feet of Jesus.

  • Your off-site event will impact those all around the world, and around the corner.

  • Together, we can be a bright light of hope and bring some joy to all of our lives by serving together. 

SCHEDULE YOUR OFF-SITE EVENT

Each off-site event must be scheduled with our Mission in Motion manager. He will work with you on the date of the event, the cost, and the plan for all of the details.

The process is easy.

RICE MEAL PACK

THE RICE MEAL

1 Rice Meal Bag feeds 6 people.

Ingredients:

  • Vitamin pack

  • Dehydrated vegetables

  • Soy

  • White Rice

These Rice Meals not only meet hunger needs, but meet nutritional needs to provide lasting energy. 

By hosting a Rice Meal Pack in your neighborhood, your church, or your business means more people like Grace* are fed.

 

She and her family will have a nutritious meal to help provide sustenance in their daily lives. It means that Grace will be able to lean into her education and concentrate on learning because her tummy will be full. Her mother will rest easier knowing that she was able to properly feed her children for the day. Grace’s father will be able to put in a full day’s work because he has the necessary nutrients to fuel his body for the manual labor ahead of him. Her baby brother will sleep well, because he is filled with a meal that, without your help, may not have been received.

*Grace is a fictitious name given to respectfully represent the stories of those who receive Rice Meals
