Our Church's Mission

Mission Nugget - The Murrow Indian Children’s Home
Currently serving 22 children and youth, the home offers residential and crisis care as well as daycare for children of teen mothers. Children, many from the Creek Tribe, live in family-like cottage settings and attend local public schools or day treatment programs. The home often accepts children and youth whom state agencies have given up on, says Director Joan Brown, a commissioned American Baptist missionary who serves through National Ministries. Children are also encouraged to learn about their Native American background and culture. “Our staff is experienced and our program has a good reputation,” says Brown. “Most of all, we offer a loving, caring environment and an opportunity for the children to be more like normal children should be.”

Mission Budget Report
Congratulations! Thanks to another $100 received for the World Mission Offering on November 2nd, we have received a total of $1129 - $79 over our goal. In addition, we received $822 for our budget. In this season of Thanksgiving, please continue to give generously so we can continue to help others. Thank you.
