Association Churches Urged to Give Used Literature to Love Packages

Love Packages is a ministry in Butler, IL which collects Christian literature and ships it to English-speaking countries around the world.  In 2018 they shipped 1,592 tons (3,184,000 pounds) of literature to countries like the Philippines, South Africa, and Ghana.  It is estimated that every piece of literature on the mission field will have an average of 20 reads.  We can help by collecting our used Sunday School literature, magazines, books (non-fiction), Bibles, tracts, devotionals, etc.  Giving Hope Ministries in Kirksville will come to your church and collect the materials that you collect.  Call 660-216-4183 for pickup.  This won't cost you anything and is a great way to recycle materials for the Kingdom!  You can learn more about Love Packages at

2020 Report 


With much anticipation for 2020, we looked forward to the year in regard to the opportunities that lay ahead for our association in the areas of missions and evangelism; however, as the e!ects of the COV-19 pandemic arose, our opportunities to engage in missions and evangelism declined. Unfortunately, our plans for mission trips and evangelistic outreach were all cancelled or postpone until next year. 

In the coming year, we will revisit the missed opportunities. We will reinvestigate our mission trips to Alaska and Wisconsin while reengaging in evangelism opportunities, like our evangelistic outreach to participants of the State Fair. We will continue to extend our missions and evangelism e!orts in church planting in the coming year.
