Missions and Outreach

The mission of Antioch is to reach up, reach in, and reach out. We give out free food at the Crosslines Food Distribution on the first Friday from March through October at Robberson Elementary School and on the fourth Wednesday of every month at Deliverance Temple Ministries. If you would like to join us to be disciples of Christ, call Pastor Kevin at 417-833-6171.

We have been collecting for the Harmony House here in Springfield. Harmony House provides safe and secure emergency housing to families escaping domestic violence. Since 1976, Harmony House provides emergency shelter, case management, advocacy and other supportive services to more than 800 women, men, and children. In addition to shelter services. If you or someone you know is living in an abusive situation, encourage them to call 417-864-SAFE (7233). Thanks to Sharon Mills for bringing this vital ministry to our attention.

The Women of God’s newest ministry is called “Hearts and Hands”. It has 2 parts: We will keep the small freezer in the kitchen stocked with ready-to-heat meals for ANYONE who needs meals due to sickness, injury, surgery, financial hardship, etc. Help yourself as needed — no need to ask. We also offer our services for any church member who may need a little extra help with a chore. We can do light housekeeping, errands, light yard work, closet/cabinet organization, etc. Tell any Women of God member what you need, & we will schedule a work crew for you. 



Praise God for seventy Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes given to children globally!
