Guatemala

During the summer of 2016, a small group of members and Open Arms staff went on a mission trip to Guatemala. They helped to build a small center, conducted a Vacation Bible Study in a small mountain school, participated in a Women's workshop, and visited a Men's Rehab center to see how mission work is being accomplished in this area of the world.

In June of 2017, a group of members returned to Guatemala. Over the course of ten days, the team renovated a mountain village school outside of Antigua, ran a family game day, and made visits to homes and a senior center, delivering gifts and praying with the residents.

      

Haiti

Also during the summer of 2016, another small group of congregational members went on a mission trip to Haiti. They visited an Orphanage there, conducted a Vacation Bible School, handed out Bibles, and ministered to children.

      

Hurricane Sandy Relief- Crisfield, MD

Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States in October 2012. Sandy became the largest Atlantic hurricane on record, and caused almost $62 billion in damages in the United States alone. Hurricane Sandy badly damaged Crisfield, Maryland. We have gone on over 15 trips to Crisfield since the storm, where we have helped build and renovate houses by painting, installing flooring, and other jobs. Also we have participated in community-building events to help support the children and elderly of Crisfield. We believe it is important to rebuild this community, not only repairing the homes, but also developing lasting relationships with the people!

    

High School Summer Mission Trips

During the summer our High School youth go on a week long mission trip to different locations. We have gone to Rochester, NY, Walpole Island, Canada, Kanawha County, WV and this past summer we went to the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans, LA. In the past our youth have built decks, painted houses, cleaned up yards all while building relationships with the residents, one another, and God! In the Summer of 2017, we are planning to go to Puerto Rico! Check out our Youth Page or contact Ray at This email address is being protected from spambots.
