A kind of mission statement, the six “great ends” (or chief purposes) of the church are outlined in chapter 1 of the PC(USA)’s Book of Order: -the proclamation of the Gospel for the salvation of humankind; -the shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God; -the maintenance of divine worship; -the preservation of the truth; -the promotion of social righteousness; -and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world. (F-1.0304). Stewardship Update So far, we've received pledges for 2015 totaling $135,080. Our church budget is close to $200,000.

As students serve Christ and the people of God, they’ll develop friendships with the people being served, with teenagers on other teams, with members of their own youth group, and, most importantly, with Jesus. Denominational differences disappear as like-minded youth work together for a common purpose. It’s awesome to watch! Projects that teams will do include: • Providing meals to the homeless • Tutoring poor or struggling children • Helping to lead a day camp for kids • Organizing a home or sprucing up a dilapidated home • Painting a room or deep-cleaning a home • Working with disabled children • Sharing stories with a lonely elderly person in an assisted-living facility YOUTH WHO ARE 12-18 ARE WELCOME TO GO ON THE MISSION TRIP THE NEXT TEAM MEETING WILL BE FOLLOWING WORSHIP ON JANUARY 25TH.
