El Salvador Mission Partnership – In 2010 we joined the First Baptist Church in Springfield in developing a mission partnership with Iglesia Bautista Dios Compasivo in Ahuachapan, El Salvador.  Over the past few years we have worked with our brothers and sisters there to establish a bakery co-op that trains and employs young people, to help install well-ventilated stoves in homes in the community, to help build chicken coops with the agricultural cooperative, to assist students with their school needs through scholarships, and more.  Our next trip to El Salvador is scheduled for April 2017.

Rebuilding Together Dayton – Each year on the last Saturday in April we join members from the surrounding community in RTDayton’s rebuild day.  We sponsor the renewal of a house and we join together to do much of that work on rebuild day.

Urban Gardening
– In 2010 we transformed what was once a small playground outside our church into an urban garden.  We now grow a variety of food–onions, kale, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, and more–and we donate the harvest to a local kitchen called the House of Bread which offers free hot meals seven days a week.
