the SPIRIT of GOD
moved....... on the face of the deep .. ..
We believe one of the most important ways the
Spirit moves throughout the world today,
is through believers sharing, teaching, giving, loving, showing, the love of God,
in every means possible and available.

We have a very active Outreach ministry.
And we're anxious to share Jesus with you!
The ESSENCE of Christianity is to SHOW the
commitment to HIM in our personal lives;
comitment to His cause;
reaching beyond ourselves to help others!

"GIDEON SUNDAY" at Country Chapel.
Each Sunday night offering at Country Chapel is designated for the Gideon Ministry. We have an annual service on the first Sunday in March, when local Gideon's and their families join us for a potluck dinner and share in the excitement of giving an offering to help the Gideon's distribute the Word of God aroundthe world.
Gideon's International annual Pastor's Appreciation Banquet for all local Pastor's within the territory of each camp is alway inspiring and meaningful to local Pastors.
We STRONGLY encourage you to get YOUR church excited about supporting the Gideon work. It is an inter-denominational work reaching people by working with local Pastors and churches in places where churches may not be able to go on their own.
Country Chapel hosts the Gideons from surrounding camps, on the first Sunday of March. We hear first hand reports from those who have helped distribute scripture around the world.
There is usually a great testimony of someone who was saved as a result of the work of the Gideons. And we are always excited about presenting them with a check to help distribute Bibles around the world.
Every Sunday night offering, from throughout the year is given to the Gideons. Becasue we want to assist them in the work of making the Word of God available to people all over the world, in all circumstances. It's about supporting a ministry committed to distributing the Bible, to the whole world. It's about giving to everyone the privilege of knowing the TRUTH that
That whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but will have
everlasting life." John 3:16
The Gospel of Jesus Christ, is faithfully preached and taught in India, by many dedicated pastors and lay leaders; in churches, homes and through various ministries.
Country Chapel sends funds to India, collected from our Sunday School and Outreach ministries. Pastors there use the funds to assist families in emergency expenses, clothing, schooling, medicine, etc...
Several special offerings have been sent such as: $200.00 to help buy a musical keyboard.
One year our Vacation Bible School raised $840 for the India mission. But our church decided to add the amount of our expenses for VBS, so we sent them $2500.
In 1999 the Pastor personally delivered a very special offering of $145 collected by the 4 and 5 year olds in our Beginners Sunday School class, for the children in the church in India. This was called the "Lad's Lunch", because in the spiritual realm of God's principles, even the smallest gifts when given in love, are multiplied miraculously.
That same year, God enabled us to give the church in India, $5000.00 for their ministry.
In 2001, we gave the Pastor in India, a check for over $1500 for him to use as the Lord directs.
In 2005, we sent a check for $3,000 to sponsor new pastors, as the work is expanding and new churches are started.
Our support of the work in India has grown over the years and will continue until Jesus comes.
