Did you recently move here?

Our community is growing quickly.  It takes time & friendly people to make a new community feel like home.

  • No one should feel isolated & alone.
  • Church should be upbeat & encouraging.
  • This Sunday can be a day to break from busy & rest.

Maybe you moved here because the schools are strong and the taxes are low.  theMISSION Church wants you to feel like this place is home.  Our heartbeat is Friends loving Neighbors.

Jesus message is simple.

  1. Follow Me always, especially when you are afraid or unsure.
  2. Treat (love) others the way you want to be treated.
  3. Teach others to do the same.

These are simple instructions for complicated people.  We want to be a loving community that helps everyone live a simple, honest & authentic Gospel.

A few years ago, I was speaking with a friend at bible study… “I’m going to start praying for a way to use my singing again,” I said. Not two minutes later my phone rang, and my friend Nathan asked if I would consider helping lead worship at The Mission.

When I walked through the doors and met the congregation of The Mission church, something stirred deep within me. There was a feeling that I couldn’t quite place my finger on, and I’ve only recently come to truly understand what it was that I experienced that day; what it was that kept me coming back.

Going to The Mission is like coming home for me. Our community has patiently showered me in love and grace, drawn close to me in times of confusion, and walked with me through times of hardship. I stepped out in faith expecting to find a place to serve, but I found much more. I found the deeper definitions of community and fellowship, a congregation of humble servants and warmth, and I found family.

We are all broken, and we are broken together. I am not the same woman I was when I came to The Mission three years ago, because God moves mountains and souls through the ministry and people here.

Sermon Series: The Gospel of Matthew

Matthew was an eye-witness to Jesus.  He traveled with Jesus, ministered with him and learned from him.  We can learn a lot from Matthew.  We are reading Mathew’s Gospel to see what a 1st Century Jewish convert & follower of Jesus has to say to us in our time.  

  1. Discover for yourself what God is like.   
  2. Learn from an Apostle how Jesus wants us to live.  

Join us Sunday at 10AM inside the Townsend, DE Fire Company Banquet Hall & find out!
