Missions at The Mill

We’re serious about making disciples. We often compare The Mill to an airport terminal.

Through Our Eyes Project

THROUGH OUR EYES

The Through Our Eyes Project is a homeless outreach that puts disposable cameras in the hands of people who have struggled with homelessness. The project aims to provide a message of hope, give the joy that comes with creating art and enable the photographers to have a voice about the issue of homelessness in the community.

GOODTREE CAFE

Matthew 7:17 says that “every good tree bears good fruit.” We aspire to be good trees that bear the fruit of the Gospel in Spartanburg and around the world. The Goodtree Cafe carries t-shirts, snacks, drinks and other merchandise to help fund missions. Specifically, everything cent made in the store goes directly to fund our Backpack Buddies program. Backpack Buddies provides food for elementary school children who likely may not eat much between lunch on Friday and breakfast at school on Monday. We send out over 125 bags of food each week to area schools. Buy some stuff. Feed a kid.

 

Do you have a great idea for a local mission project or outreach event? We’d love to hear it and help you care for the community. We have set aside a portion of our missions budget just for ideas like yours. Apply today to get started.

The Mill has partnerships in Czech Republic, East Asia, Haiti, Honduras, India, Nicaragua, Spain & Uganda with short-term mission teams going to each of these locations in 2018. The 2018 trip schedule will be announced Sunday, November 5th at 3:00 pm at our GO 2018 Interest Meeting in the sanctuary.
