World Gospel Outreach (WGO)
Since the conception of Latitude, we have partnered with World Gospel Outreach to send teams to both Honduras and Belize for short-term mission trips. These trips have given us the opportunity to provide care for displaced and abandoned children, offer help for dental and medical needs, and most importantly: share the gospel and experience the joy that comes through serving.
In January 2017, we joined forces with Bethany Global in Ethiopia. We were invited to send a representative to join the team and travel with them. This began not only a partnership, but a family. We believe that a family setting is the best place for children to grow, and Bethany Global makes it possible for children to stay in their home country, with a local family whenever possible.
Latitude Church has had the opportunity for the past three years to pour into our local high school. We provide the pregame team meal for all of the home football games as well as the girls varsity basketball team. We feed, not only their bellies, but their souls with the Word of God. We have seen several of these students begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
While we support global missions wholeheartedly, we also believe that there is work to be done in our own community. Project 252 is the umbrella that covers all of our local outreach.
In 2016, a house was donated to our church to be used for ministry. While it needed a lot of work, our congregation came together to completely restore it. Now, this house is used to help families get back on their feet financially. The transitional home offers a warm, safe, and comfortable environment with a minimal cost to families with hopes of transitioning them into their own home within a year.
Each year, we dedicate an entire week (Monday – Friday) to local mission work. Our church body divides and conquers to be the hands and feet of Jesus through a variety of service projects all over our community. Reach Week 2018 will take place July 30 – August 3.
On the first Saturday of every month, we have teams who serve all over our community to complete local service projects. If you know of a local need, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Which means it’s time for our annual Christmas outreach, Christmas Unwrapped! Each year, we provide a Christmas experience for families in New Bern and Pamlico County that could use a little extra help. Want to help make it happen? Check out some serving opportunities below, and fill out the form to sign up!
Host a Family: Hosting a family will consist of committing to pray for a Christmas Unwrapped family and deliver a specially designed Christmas experience to them on December 14th. This experience will already be put together for you to pick up from the church at 5 pm that evening.
Sponsor a Family: Family sponsors provide a want, need, wear, and read for each child in a family. This is a great option for Freedom Groups or groups of friends to sign up for together! All items must be turned in to the Connect Center by Sunday, December 2nd.
You can also serve by making a monetary donation at the Connect Center. Be sure to write “Christmas Unwrapped” on an envelope or on the memo line of your check.
