Ways to get involved with missions at SW Hills...

Matthew 25:35-40 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

How can you get involved in Evangelism and Missions? Southwest Hills offers several tools to get you started as well as many opportunities to volunteer and provide financial support.
At the missions table in the lobby of the main building, you can find the following tools and information:
  • Welcome Baskets – a gift you can give to a new neighbor that includes sweets, small gifts, the gospel message, and invitation to our church.
  • Gospel Tracts – a small and simple publication that clearly explains salvation. Choose from a variety of tracts that you can hand out to others.
  • New Testament – Copies of the New Testament are available to give to new believers or those you are witnessing to.
  • Salvation Message DVDs – Another great resource for those who are visual learners or when reading English may be difficult.
  • Book of John & Romans in Arabic – great for new believers whose first language is Arabic, or for those you are witnessing to that read Arabic.
  • Faith Giving Donation Slip – Help out our ministries, missionaries, and mission trips by providing financial support. Funds will be distributed to where the need is greatest. No donation is too small!
  • Informational pamphlets and flyers on the ministries and missionaries we support.

  • Awana Clubs – We need great leaders and helpers to assist in our Awana children's ministry. This rewarding ministry helps children memorize Bible verses, teaches them lessons from the Bible, and reinforces learning through creative games and crafts on Wednesday nights during the school year. If you are looking to serve in a ministry like this, contact us at  Proverbs 22:6 Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
