Missions

Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 16:15

Are you ready? Jesus told the disciples in Mark 16:15, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Not only was this a command for the disciples, it was for us too!  Missions is so important to us because we are to “live sent” by God at all times.  So, this should start where we live, and then “to the ends of the earth” like Jesus also said in Acts 1:8.

A Sending Church

Philadelphia wants to be known as a “sending church” that is obedient to the command of God.  We want to give our church family multiple opportunities to serve and share the Gospel in our community, in the state of Louisiana, or go on a short-term mission trip in the United States or Internationally.

Over the years, Philadelphia has had the privilege of sharing the Gospel with thousands nationally and internationally. If you choose to serve alongside of us, you will have the opportunity to:
  • Help build homes and churches
  • Feed the poor, hungry, and homeless
  • Share the Word of God to others
  • Help those in desperate need like the widow and the orphan
 
If you would like get more information about the upcoming mission opportunities in our church, please contact the church office.

Love Out Loud

Love Out Loud is an annual, joint-campus event where our church loves on our community in a big way.  All ages have an opportunity to put their faith in motion in this community-wide event. There are many activities you can volunteer for: service projects, feeding the homeless, block parties and much more.

LOL 2022

Love Out Loud is a yearly community missions event where Philadelphia seeks to make a positive impact on our community by showing compassion and the love of Jesus in a meaningful way.  This year, we will be showing love and appreciation to the nurses and support staff at many of our area nursing homes.  We want to say "Thank You" to so many people who help give a better quality of life by serving the precious residents in their care.

There will be two opportunities to volunteer:

Saturday, September 10th we will meet at the HD Campus Gym at 10am to assemble baskets. All materials for the baskets will have been purchased and baskets will be ready to assemble.

Please also consider signing up to help deliver the baskets!  Because of the schedule of the area nursing homes, we will be delivering our baskets on the following Monday, September 12th, at 1pm.  

Sign-up sheets will be available in the Welcome Center beginning Sunday, August 28th for both of these opportunities for you to be involved in this important community mission event.
