Global

We are committed to helping our neighbors around the globe. Each year we strive to support global missions through monetary contributions, food, clothing, and other necessities, and providing volunteer labor and medical personnel to other countries.

 

As the world around us constantly changes, we work with our mission partners to insure the safety of our mission volunteers.

Around the Globe Missions

Abaco, Bahamas Mission Trip

FEBRUARY 24 – MARCH 3, 2018
$1000 per person

We are looking for 20-25 people to join us on an experience of a lifetime. We will be partnering with our church sponsored missionaries (and former FPC Staff members) Jan and Gabe Swing to make the difference in the lives of some of God’s children. The Swings are working in a neighborhood called “The Mud” and the name says it all.

 

We will be doing construction/repair work to their homes. There are other opportunities to serve such as working with children in the neighborhood, cooking for the work team, or fill in the blank! If you are feeling God’s nudge to serve his children in need in Marsh Harbor, Bahamas, let Amy Warner know!

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH USA

“People will come from the East and the West.” – Luke 13:29

 

“If there is a single trait which serves to give to the Presbyterian Church in the United States a distinct character it is that of a Spirit of Missionary Enterprise which it has possessed from its very origin.” Unpublished history, “Standing Committee of Missions,” c. 1827

 

The Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. was the first Protestant denomination in the United States to organize a missions committee at the national level. In 1802, the General Assembly appointed seven members to the initial Standing Committee of Missions. The success of the committee and subsequent growth in mission work led to the organization of a permanent Board of Missions in 1815 and a separate Board of Foreign Missions in 1837. From age to age, Presbyterian mission work has touched the lives of people throughout the United States and the world. God could be calling YOU to respond to the changing needs in your community and around the world.
