In 2006, Sparta Church sent out a mission team to minister to the people of Webster County West Virginia for the first time. Through the years the ministry done in West Virginia has impacted many people – those in West Virginia and also our own team members. Each ministry we are involved in presents a unique opportunity to share the love of Jesus with those we are ministering to.
Ministries: Where will your gifts serve the community in Webster Springs?
1. Basketball Camps: We have camps going on in two different locations during the days throughout the week for children in K-8th grade. In the evenings we have an open gym where we have an opportunity to shoot hoops and build relationships with kids of all ages.
2. Soccer Camp: New this year as we join the town’s soccer program for a camp.
3. Construction Projects: Through the years we have done a variety of projects from building whole houses to replacing old trailers with newer ones, new roofs, doors, windows, bathrooms, electrical wiring, plumbing, house siding, painting and sheet-rocking, to name a few. It is a wonderful way to be the arms and feet (and sweat) of Jesus. This ministry is open to anyone willing to serve.
4. Outreach: We have several opportunities to connect with the community. We also engage in relationship building and provisions for the families whose homes we are improving.
5. Ministering to our Missionaries - Food Prep: This is a vital part of our overall ministry. Our wonderful team blesses us with truly great meals daily. Working in this area is very rewarding and appreciated!
