Pea Ridge Baptist Church members heading to Alaska

Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, August 27, 2014

A group of 14 members of Pea Ridge Baptist Church will make the long trip to Nome, Alaska in March 2015. They will be braving the cold, arctic weather to spread the word and love of Jesus while serving at the finish line of the world famous Iditarod dog sled race. They will have the opportunity to reach the Native community of Nome as well as into the musher subculture of Alaska. The team will distribute Bible-in-a-bucket door to door, participate in prison ministry, prayer walk, work with a women’s shelter, host a kid’s club, and possibly get the chance to mush a dog themselves.
The mission team will fly overnight on March 12 and arrive in Nome the morning of March 13, at which time they will immediately begin their service and outreach to the region. This trip will cost approximately $2,000 per person, which is mostly airfare expense. The team will also be responsible for appropriate clothing, which can vary in cost.
There will be several team and individual fundraisers over the next few months, including an upcoming Bow/Skeet shoot on August 30. Check out the Pea Ridge Baptist Church Facebook page to learn more about this specific event. The team asks that the public keep them in your prayers as they prepare to go on this mission trip. Those who are able to participate in any of the fundraisers or wish to make a contribution, it would be greatly appreciated. Tax-deductible donations may be made to Pea Ridge Baptist Church. Please note that the donation is to go toward the Alaskan Mission Trip. The church mailing address is 8732 Hwy 108, Mill Spring, N.C. 28756.
