Area church aims for global impact
This month, Long Hill Baptist Church, 100 Middlebrooks Ave., is celebrating the congregation's 59th anniversary in Trumbull. Despite it's smaller size, the church supports 10 missionary families that are establishing new churches in the U.S., as well as countries including Canada, England, Kenya, Ghana (West Africa), and the Philippines. For Hammond, an important part of that effort is getting the Bible into the hands of people who desire to read it. "We're partnering with a ministry called Northeast Baptist Seedline to assemble and distribute portions of the Bible to people around the world," explains Hammond. "Last fall, our members assembled five thousand scriptures for distribution both here in the area as well as in the Philippines."
