Global Horizons is an organization based in England and lead by Alan Scotland, which has three ministry arms, the first being humanitarian partnerships across the globe. The philosophy behind these are that partnering with existing local ministries saves resources and unifies the Gospel message. The second arm is training; Global Horizons sponsors several ministry schools around the globe to help equip leaders. One of those schools is Visible Music College in Memphis, Tennessee. Musicians there are trained for service in the church and in the music industry. The third arm is churches in the UK and the USA, working together for mutual accountability and encouragement. This arm of the operations is called Lifelink. There are currently nine Lifelink churches in the USA. Pastors and leaders from the nine churches meet every March for a national conference, then in the fall of each year for a prayer retreat. Lifelink UK and Lifelink USA are connected relationally, but operate independently from each other financially. The relationship of Main Street Church to Lifelink is relational and financial. In our current budget, around fifteen thousand dollars will go to supporting Global Horizon efforts and other Lifelink related activities. These funds support great efforts all over the globe. We also look to Alan Scotland and other Lifelink churches for external accountability, without which any church will drift.Find Out More
O.A.S.I.S Food Pantry and Thrift Store
On the third & fifth Thursday of each month, we supply volunteers to help with distribution. Join us! Over twenty-one years ago a small group of people asked themselves, “How can we help those of our neighbors who are in need?” A group of caring individuals from three Lutheran Churches decided to respond to one of the most basic needs for survival; and that was to provide food assistance. These three churches; Living Lord, Christ the King, and, Hope gathered together the necessary volunteers and Christ the King provided the physical facility to give birth to: Outreach Assistance Serving Individuals in St. Charles County (O.A.S.I.S. Food Pantry) — a mission offering food assistance. This mission is incorporated as a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization.Find Out More
