The Missions Team of Hartford City Wesleyan Church takes seriously Christ's Great Commission's call to make disciples of all nations.. (Matt 28:18-20). The Hartford City Wesleyan Church Missions Team has a passion for missions and has a desire to inform, educate, and inspire our congregation regarding opportunities for a loving response to global needs in the name of Christ.
The Missions Team meets on the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. Prayer is the cornerstone of the meetings, and specific aspects of the ministry are discussed, including:
Caring For and Supporting HCWC Missionaries

HC Wesleyan supports additional missionaries, in hostile areas of the world, who remain unnamed for security reasons.
Organizing Short-term Missions Trips
Planning the Annual Church Missions Conference
Preparing for Monthly Missions Moments
Finding Ways to Fight Global Injustice
Ministries dear to the Mission Team's Heart include:
Operation Christmas Child
This is a practical way to share the Christ's love with boys and girls around the world through a simple shoe box gift! This year, HCWC sent out over 115 boxes!
Annual Vacation Bible School Missions Ministry
In 2014, our VBS kids purchased over 700 shoes for boys and girls around the world through Soles4Souls!
Anti-Human Trafficking Efforts
There are more slaves today than at any other time in human history.
The church cannot be silent on this issue! ("Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves." Proverbs 31:8)
One way to lessen our slavery footprint is by buying fair-trade items. One easy way to do this is by purchasing fair-trade coffee through the Mission Team's partnership with Just Love Coffee.
Profits of each sale will go directly to the Missions Team and 100% of that will be donated to World Hope International in the fight against human trafficking.
World Hope International actively rescues and rehabilitates human trafficking victims. Be a smarter consumer and fight human trafficking through your purchases!
