Lay Life and Mission
At Christ Church we believe that we are called to serve others. Serving the Lord and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ can seem like an overwhelming task-but our Mission team finds faith and trust in the direction and strength of the Holy Spirit.
LAY LIFE MISSION FOR June/July
UNION MISSION has been selected for the Lay Life Mission of June and July. I am quoting Dan Carney, the Executive Director of the Mission: "Union Mission is the only shelter for men in Westmoreland County serving 250 men each calendar year for up to 120 days." Support services are provided through weekly counseling; life-skills training; educating them in real world skills such as balancing a checkbook, budgeting and cooking. The men are provided with support needed to assist them in meeting the goals that they have set in an environment which allows them to build character, morality, and bonds of friendship and family. The goal of the Mission is to enable the residents to "become interdependent citizens that are productive, respectful members of the community." The Mission always accepts monetary support but also needs: Laundry detergent, T-shirts of various sizes (many of the men are not large), cleaning supplies, paper towels and toilet paper. A box located in the Chapel will be available during June and July for these items.
Thank you for your support.
On going missions include Kiva loans and our partnership with the Westmoreland County senior food bank as well as the local meals on wheels.
You are invited to meet our mission partners from across the globe to right here in our neighborhood and learn more about what God is doing around the world through them.
