Townsend Fire Company arial view

Townsend Fair 2016

My family & I moved here from the Lehigh Valley ten years ago, and I finally feel that Townsend is my home now.
We are able to combine our church life with our home life and grow in our community in ways that have astonished us.
theMISSION has stretched me into doing things I’ve never done before…you know it’s only God working through you to do these things.
I feel like theMISSION is a place where there is real, authentic community and a place I can call home.
theMISSION has given me and my family opportunity to come out of our comfort zone in loving others.
theMISSION has helped me understand how much I truly love the local church and how we as the local church can make Jesus famous to our community.
I’ve been impacted by wanting to be a better Christian and thinking about the Word of God more in depth.
It’s given me great opportunity to serve here and in this community.
It’s easy to meet people here…the fellowship is gracious and loving.
theMISSION has given my family opportunity to serve with other Christian families…really giving us opportunity to get connected with the community.
theMISSION has given me a family, brothers & sisters in Christ, to walk alongside with me in my journey and it gives the opportunity to be the same to them.
It’s not just a Sunday event…God’s actually running this church. It’s not a church of tradition; the Lord has a lot of room to move around here.
Thanks so much for your support and encouragement…very much appreciated.

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!

FEATURED POST: Building Community  


Genuine community is hard to find in our fast-paced & high-tech world.  Families are busy raising kids, many parents travel far to work, and new neighborhoods are popping up everywhere.  It’s hard to get to know your neighbors, let alone find a great church the helps cultivate real community. 

We’re parents with jobs & neighbors too.  It’s really important that theMISSION Church be a place full of friends who serve our community.  We appreciate the seasons of life and rhythms of the school year. 

Many who attend theMISSION have found healing, true friendships, and hope in Jesus Christ.
