Our missions focus at Springhouse is to live and share the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world by fulfilling Matthew 5:16, “let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (ESV)
At Springhouse we set aside approximately 10% of our yearly budget for missions. For 2018, we have budgeted $78,200 to missions! More than money, though, we want to urge you to get involved personally.
Jesus said the greatest commandments are to love God and to love our neighbors. Springhouse provides many opportunities to be the hands and feet of Christ to our neighbors locally and around the world through short-term missions trips and through local charity work.

Service Opportunity / 4th Saturday
We here at Springhouse began a partnership with Unity Freewill Baptist Church in feeding approximately 45 families at Wherry housing. We meet on the fourth Friday of each month at 6:00 pm at Wherry's Children's Learning Center to sort and box the food for distribution on the fourth Saturday beginning at 10:00 am.
If you are interested in more information or volunteering, contact Rick and Angie Beshearse at email@example.com.
Wherry Workday 8am – Noon
Wherry Work Days happen on the 4th Saturday of every month (except December) from 8AM to noon. People from different ministries, groups and backgrounds join together to help better the community through various projects. These work days are open to everyone and all skill levels are welcome. These service days are a great time to serve with your family, small group, or co-workers. Dress in clothes you don't mind getting dirty and meet us at 113 Stonewall Drive in Smyrna.
Soup 4 Seniors
Our ministry of providing foods for some of the seniors at the
LaVergne Senior Center sprang from a need of about 8 to 10 of the seniors who frequent the center on a regular basis but find themselves in need. As the saying goes, they have more month than money. Our desire is to see that they miss no meals during this time. We do this through quarterly church-wide can drive collections throughout the year.

J.O.Y – Just Older Youth
As an extension of the food ministry that was already in place, the opportunity to minister to the retirement community at Mayfield Manor came to us in July 2017. In addition to delivering food monthly, we go and love on them a little extra with bingo games and giveaways from time to time. This past Christmas as a church-wide outreach, we sang Christmas carols and gave cards and ornaments the children of Springhouse had made.
