Supporting the work of God around the world is an important focus of Timberwood Church. 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.
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, Amy Labarre 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 Amy at: email@example.com.
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 also spend time in community with one another and exploring of living a life as servant of Christ. These missions are open to 6th-12th grade students. A full description of each trip is available on the application below. Registration is now open for the 2024 Mink Lake and Rock Ridge mission trips.
The Detroit mission trip is our third youth opportunity. This mission is open to 9th-12th grade students. Every June, 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.
