Springfield First and volunteers from the surrounding area come together to pack rice meals for Haiti and Ukraine. Each bag is filled with rice, soy, vegetables, and vitamins and provides 6 meals. Through our partnership with Midwest Mission Distribution Center, we annually ship over to 15,000 rice meals, or over 90,000 meals. The joy we see in the eyes of families receiving these meals shows the blessing this simple task brings to the lives of those who receive them!

We regularly have sent mission trips to Haiti; however, due to recent civil unrest, we have been unable to go since 2019. We continue to support the School of Hope in Haiti, and we pray for our Haitian friends. We are eager to get back to Haiti when we can!

A team annually goes to the beautiful but poverty-stricken Appalachian Mountains. They do construction projects to help a family in need. For example, a team built a porch and gable roof for a mother who had been in a serious car accident and needed a dry landing with rails to safely exit her home. If you’re interested in going to Henderson Settlement in Frakes, Kentucky, to work with a construction team in Appalachia this summer, please contact the church office for more information.

Springfield First has had a long and rich relationship with our brothers and sisters of the Weala District in Liberia, one of the poorest parts of Liberia. We have helped to build a clinic and a school, as well as provide the means for repairing the district parsonage and church. We have also worked with this district to provide clean water for the school and those living close to the school, and we sent a $6,000 special donation to assist with the COVID response in Weala. As we continue to support the students through scholarships and the medical clinic, we hope to continue to deepen our relationships with the people of the Weala district.

We have sent two teams to Detroit to help with various improvement projects for local inner-city homeowners. They worked with the Rippling Hope Mission to build a porch, install a security door, put up drywall, resurface a kitchen floor, clean gutters, paint, and more!
