Ghana mission trip 2016: Our 10 Ghana Mission trippers left February 12th, and returned February 21st. Dedication to mission and outreach activities has always been central to our faith. Across our 150-year history, we have supported missionaries in Africa, China, Korea, Venezuela, Iran, Tibet, Brazil, Chile and Thailand. Our overseas relief efforts have also included participating in One Great Hour of Sharing since 1953, sending blankets through Church World Service since 1968 and racking up the miles in the Crop Walk since 1974.

 

Our mission activities have also extended to worthy causes here at home in the United States, including working with programs such as Habitat for Humanity, Campus Ministry, and Compassionate Friends. Our Senior High Youth Group has continued this tradition through their Mission Trip over the last several years, giving tirelessly of their time and spirit in such areas as Alaska, Mexico, Ohio, and North Carolina. This summer, our Senior High Youth Group went to Delaware to lend their helping hands.

Our commitment to service has extended down to a local level as well, continuing to support the Better Beginnings School and Day Care which we helped to found in 1974, through the Stop Gap Fund, and through ongoing support to numerous local programs, including the Interfaith Hospitality Network and the Hightstown Community Action Service Center (Rise).

 

Our strength as a church has always been grounded in our unwavering desire to serve God and his Kingdom here on Earth.

 

Mission

20% of our pledges are designated for mission. The Mission Committee is searching constantly for causes, needs and organizations to support with donations, prayer and/or labor. Input from the congregation to identify new causes is encouraged.
