Haiti Mission Trip a group went in  March 2020


CIA volunteers have become very passionate about our mission in haiti. We have been working with Haitians to build and sustain water filtrations sites for the community. We also work closely with Functional Literacy Ministries to provide a bible to each of the literacy school graduates. Looking to get involved? That could mean raising money for bibles, having our reps talk to your church family or joining on the next trip to Haiti!

Undie Sunday

Every September we collect NEW underwear, bras and socks to donate to 8-10 local missions. Missions tell us that undergarments are not typically donated but are so necessary for the clients. We collect within each member church throughout the month and then bring the donations together to be sorted and taken to local missions. You don't have to be a church group to collect, if you have a group/organization that would like to join please contact us.

Work Weekend 

One of our biggest events takes place at a local mission every May (it has been canceled for 2020). We have volunteers of all skill levels come out to help rehab the mission's facilities so they can continue to serve. Our volunteers typically paint, garden, clean, repair electrical/ plumbing issues, drywall, siding of houses and so much more. 2019’s project took place at  St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy. We hope you can join us at a new site next year!

Loving Laura Project

Churches In Action has partnered with The Loving Laura Project, a memorial honoring the life of Laura Cummings who was a victim of domestic violence and child abuse.The Loving Laura Project is comprised of two aspects: the placement of a memorial headstone marking Laura’s final resting place located at Holy Spirit Cemetery in North Collins, NY (July 2016) and the placement of an Angel of Hope statue in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo, NY (December 6, 2018). Churches In Action has contributed: financial support, encouragement and assisted in finding a permanent home for the Angel of Hope at Forest Lawn Cemetery. Angel of Hope and the children it represents will be celebrated every December 6th at Forest Lawn.

Christmas Caroling

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing loud for all to hear." In 2018 we had 140+ volunteers and went to 7 group homes in the area. We provided apple cider, cookies and fellowship. The CIA also wants to thank Sue Rich for 20+ years of chairing this important and enjoyable mission. Lyn Rich and Tom Schaner will be running the event this year. We look forward to another successful year. 

Christmas in the Country

A great fundraiser for our projects is at Christmas in the Country craft show. Volunteers take a few hour shift selling shopping  bags to those attending  the craft show. CIA gets to keep a portion of the funds raised to use for our many other project. 

Contact CIA to find out more

We are always interested in talking to new members. We can talk to you about how to get involved or planning a time to come and speak at your church about mission opportunities. We plan the events and your group gets to come and participate! We look forward to hearing from you.
