Our Church's Mission

Mission Nugget - The Murrow Indian Children’s Home
The Murrow Indian Children’s Home was founded in 1902 by an enterprising missionary and educator who began taking in orphaned and homeless Native American children soon after the Civil War. Two Indian tribes later donated land for an orphanage, and concerned Baptists in the local community also gave land and buildings. The American Baptist Home Mission Society assumed full responsibility for the school in the early 1900s, and the orphanage was moved to the campus of Bacone College in 1910. Over the years, the Murrow Home has provided loving car for hundreds of abused, neglected or abandoned children.

Mission Budget Report
As of October 26th, the receipts for the World Mission Offering were $1029, just $21 short of our goal of $1050. Thank you. Receipts for the budget were $197. If we are to meet our budgeted obligations, we need to receive $3550 over the next nine weeks or an average of almost $400 per week. Please consider prayerfully how you can help us support Fairport Homes, Springbrook, and Keuka College.
