Rural Missions works to strengthen fragile, Sea Island houses one plank, nail, floor and roof at a time. Their mission is to restore the foundation of the community – its families – by repairing the homes in which they live. We believe that human dignity thrives in a place that is safe and secure. Rural Missions is committed to ensuring that no matter how modest a home may be, its residents can sleep easily, knowing they are safe within it.
Church of the Palms supports the Rural Missions with direct mission dollars as part of our support of state missions.
