Missions

Supporting the work of God around the world is an important focus of Timberwood Church. Using Acts 1:8 as a guide, Timberwood partners with individuals and organizations locally, regionally, nationally and globally. Areas of focus have been church planting and the Muslim world. Timberwood commits at least 10% of its annual budget to this work. Currently, Timberwood supports 13 different missionaries and mission organizations.

 

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Sharing Bread Soup Kitchen

Timberwood Church is partnered with Sharing Bread Soup Kitchen in Brainerd. We have the opportunity to bless our community by serving a meal on the 2nd Sunday of every month. The Sunday meals are served 1-1:30pm, doors open at 12:30pm. The meal is prepped ahead in the Timberwood kitchen for ease and the minimum number of servers needed is 4, however the more people participating the greater the opportunity to engage and visit with guests. 


When you sign up, Kelsey Engel will contact you the week prior to your serving date to go over details for the day of service, send you a copy of the Volunteer Release Form, and answer questions. In the meantime, if you have questions about serving you can direct them to Kelsey at: engelkelsey@gmail.com.

Youth mission trips

Timberwood currently supports three youth mission trips each year. 


The first two missions, Mink Lake and Rock Ridge camps, allow us the privilege of getting each camp ready for the ministry that it runs during the summer. We help in any way that we can which includes cleaning cabins and outhouses, splitting logs, weeding, hauling loads of brush, cleaning canoes and whatever else needs to be done for the camp to run smoothly through the summer. We also spend time through the weekend in community with one another and looking at what it means to live lives as servants of Christ. These missions are open to 6th-12th grade students.


The Detroit mission trip is our third youth opportunity. This mission is open to 9th-12th grade students. Every July, a team heads to Detroit to partner with an organization called Detroit Love to offer a week-long Vacation Bible School for the local residents of Detroit. In addition to VBS each day, team members have an opportunity to worship, prayer-walk in the community, and offer support to Detroit residents.
