Ministry & Missions“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
We have a myriad of ministries in which you can invest your time, talents and material resources as God has gifted you. Our Ministry and Mission book is intended to help you discover and connect to a ministry here at Snyder or in the community. We believe that the “church” is the people and needs to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. We believe that our neighbor is right her in Fayetteville and across the world. Our prayer is that the worship that takes place here on Sunday will continue as you serve the world around you.
Snyder folks are very involved in both financially supporting missions and in hands-on mission activities. One fourth of our church budget goes to support missions at home and around the world. More than five hundred people participate in Operation Inasmuch Blitz Day each year. Others are involved in Bible study class mission projects, the Carpentry Ministry, Cumberland Interfaith Hospitality Network, and other mission activities. Snyder members support our food drives, which come with every Singing Christmas Tree, Operation Christmas Child and supplies for mission trips, and on and on. Snyder is a sponsor of local elementary school (Margaret Willis School) and provides over 150 backpack buddies for 7 local schools each week. Snyder also hosts Welcome House, Fayetteville, a home to host SIV refugees as they come to our country. Literally, hundreds have participated in overseas mission trips (most recently Kenya, Haiti and Myanmar) and emergency repair teams across the US. If you would like to be a part of missions, here’s your chance. We’d love to see every member “find their place, do their part”!
