Missions & Outreach
We believe it is vital to offer help, hope, and healing in Christ to all.
We offer help by feeding the hungry, hope by proclaiming the gospel, and healing by connecting with others in our community.
By 2025 our congregation intends to distribute 350,000 meals, celebrate 120 professions of faith, and connect 600 individuals into faith groups.
Christ calls us to share God’s love with the world. We do so by offering our time, talents, and resources.
Making Disciples of All Nations
Christ compels us to “go and make disciples of all the nations.” Thus, we desire to make a tangible and significant difference for the Kingdom of Christ in the world — whether across the street or across the ocean. That’s why you’ll find every age group at Hixson UMC involved in missions. Many of our groups are engaged in local mission projects throughout the year; and we commision teams to serve internationally — offering help, hope, and healing through Jesus Christ. Through our resources, we also provide regular support to the missionaries and ministries listed below:
