On Sundays at 4:30, we gather to learn, worship together, and encourage one another.
What to expect on a Sunday (Covid edition):
Our gathering is for the whole family. We will have an interactive service that may include prayer, scripture reading, conversation, listening, video segments, coloring or other activities. At this time, we are not singing or eating at our gatherings, and we do not have separate activities for children or babies.
Our gathering is very casual, and we don't expect you or your children to act a certain way or dress a certain way or even believe a certain way. We'd love for you to join us so that we can learn with and from each other what it means to follow the way of Jesus.
While at our gathering, we ask that you wear a mask/face covering when you are within six feet of anyone not in your household. We will have masks and hand sanitizer available, and we will encourage social-distancing.
Our DNA groups (Discipleship and Accountability) meet throughout the weeks in small groups. The groups meet to read and discuss scripture, pray, and talk about life together. If you want to learn how to live out your faith daily, a DNA group will help you do that.
Anyone who has decided to follow Jesus can be a part of a DNA group. You can organize your own, using this guide; or you can call us at 601-LOVE-473 and we will connect you with an existing group.
Since 2017, Mission of the Dirt Road has been hosting a Christmas party where each family received a basket of hygiene/cleaning supplies along with some fun things. During the pandemic, Mission of the Dirt Road worked with Keystone SafetyNet Alliance to offer food distributions in the area; and then Mission of the Dirt Road was awarded a Clay County CARES ACT grant to distribute $20,000 worth of hygiene and cleaning supplies.
In August, we were also able to work with local volunteers and organizations to distribute backpacks and school supplies to approximately 300 students.
If you would like to receive food and hygiene/cleaning supplies, please follow our facebook page for more information.

WiFi and Coffee
Third places is a term coined by sociologist Ray Oldenburg and refers to places where people spend time between home (‘first’ place) and work (‘second’ place). They are locations where we exchange ideas, have a good time, and build relationships.
As a small town, Keystone has very limited options for third place kinds of gatherings and High Ridge has none, so Mission of the Dirt Road offers our space to meet that community need.
Everyone is invited and welcome to join us on Tuesdays and Fridays, 9am-2pm, for FREE coffee and WiFi.
Borrow a Bike or a Book
The dream for Mission of the Dirt Road developed out of Carey's work with Book Bus, a ministry of Seeds of Grace.
Mission of the Dirt Road, in partnership with Seeds of Grace, tries to maintain a small collection of books and bicycles for people who may need them. Stop by during free coffee and WiFi, and we’d be happy to share what we have.
If you are interested in donating a bicycle, please call 601-LOVE-473.
