Woodridge Christian Church Missions

Woodridge Christian Church looks to scripture for purpose and ministry.  As it relates to mission, we turn to the parable of the Good Samaritan.  In that story we look at the question, "Who is my neighbor?" and we discern what this means to us as Disciples.

To honor God, in our efforts to live out this question, we approach the answer using a three-pronged approach: local, national and international missions.

We have set out to learn about local missions in and around Wichita where we can help and be involved at the local level.  We have worked with the Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House, Veterans Association and Interfaith Ministries, just to name a few.

As part of the Disciples of Christ, we have also set out to be involved in disaster recovery work in the United States. We have traveled to Joplin, Oklahoma City and Estes Park for disaster assistance. We have also worked with Rippling Hope in Detroit to offer our love and support to neighbors across the nation.

 As neighbors in the world, we are in partnership with JustHope out of Tulsa, OK who work with communities in Nicaragua. We have partnered with La Flor, Nicaragua a small village in the rainforest of Nicaragua. We have made three trips to the village over the past five years to work with them on clean water, medical services, educational issues, and adequate housing.   

As a church we continue to discern the will of God as we answer the question, “Who is my neighbor?”
