Missions Trips

Many churches offer the fantastic opportunity to go on missions trips. Some trips offer relief and repair to areas in the United States reeling from devastating storms or severe poverty. Other trips take church members to other countries, serving Christian efforts overseas and spreading the word of God.

Rada Cutlery can help your missions trip happen. One Rada Cutlery seller from a Nazarene church in Mantachie, Mississippi said this:

“We love Rada products (especially the Quick Mixes) and we know how much others love it too. I know Rada will be a great success in helping our Missions team be able to make our trip to Nairbi Kenya. Thank you so much!”

Building Fund

Since churches are just like any other building, they need repairs. To give a church’s account a boost, fundraising is a popular option in order to offset the costs of building repairs. Also, churches often need equipment replacement such as a new piano or organ, a new copy machine, or other supplies. With Rada Cutlery’s 40% profit, those funds add up, lessening the burden on a church to create a better building to worship in. If a congregation is willing to pitch in and work together, the building will come together too.

A seller from a Baptist church in Ashland, Ohio knew the value of fundraising with Rada:

“We are praying for the 40% profit from before as we are raising money to build a new church.”
