Laurel Church is dedicated to Missions:
Making disciples is the backbone of any church body. Just before Christ ascended into heaven He commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and to teach them to obey everything He commanded us to do. A necessary and important part of making disciples is Missions. Therefore, we at Laurel seek to glorify God through the support and the encouragement of missionaries who preach the gospel in the United States and abroad.
There are several ways to support Laurel’s missionaries:
- Pray for them.
- Communicate with them by e-mail or letters.
- Give financially to support them.
- Show hospitality to them when they are in our area.
