NFUMC GO Team Policy

Ministry in Missions - Where in the World is Norcross First UMC?

Norcross First is committed to being a missionary church with a vision to reach out in both word and deed, locally, nationally and internationally. In addition to providing support for our denominational agencies, our church is involved locally with the Norcross Cooperative Ministry, Meals on Wheels, homeless shelters, and children’s homes. Support is given to several missionary families and our sister church in Bulgaria who are helping to fulfill the Great Commission by carrying the Word of God to the uttermost parts of the earth. Our church also sends out teams and individuals to work on short-term projects in the U.S. and other countries.

We believe missions is that part of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8) in which Christians reach beyond the normal discipleship sphere of their own local church for the purpose of assisting in the proclamation of the gospel, the disciplining of converts, the establishment and strengthening of indigenous local churches and the development of Christian leaders.

Recognizing the great benefit of short-term missions trips both to our missionaries and people, Norcross First participates in several local, national and international trips each year around the world with over 100 of our members usually participating.

Over $200,000 is given through Faith Promise to missions each year.
