Bourbon First United Methodist Church is excited to take part in many missions activities, locally, nationally and internationally.  Once or twice a year we plan work teams to help in disaster recovery efforts around the US.  In the spring we have an international mission trip to Nicaragua.

The church also supports missionaries in Bolivia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.  You are encouraged to get involved and/or support these missions and missionaries on an individual basis.  The missions budget at the church is funded through designated giving/collections and is not a general church budget item.  You can always mark your gifts ‘Missions’ and 100% of that money will help fund these causes.
