Mission

At Arapaho Road we are learning to become people who love God and love others. We understand the Bible teaches that as followers of Jesus, we are to be people who bless and serve others as we build relationships with people in our community. Not only do we long to serve people in our local community, but also we hope to engage people throughout the global community in ways that make a difference in their lives both on earth and into eternity.

Although Arapaho Road has a rich history in missions and serving people on the local and global scene, our church is in a season of praying, researching and developing new opportunities to serve others. We look forward to connecting people to serve others and help meet the needs of those living close to our own backyard as well as people living on the other side of the world. In the coming days we look forward to unveiling additional ways that people can participate in serving others in the name of Jesus and with the love of Jesus.

Below you can see how you can serve, give and pray alongside the Arapaho Road Church family.

JOURNEY FELLOWSHIP CHURCH - THE EMORY FAMILY
About a year and a half ago God brought the Emory family to Arapaho Road. We knew they would be with us for a short while as God had called the Emorys to plant a church back in the South Carolina area when the time was right. About five months ago we prayed for and said good-bye to the Emorys and blessed their family and budding ministry with a financial blessing to help as they got started building relationships for the purpose of evangelism leading to making disciples.
