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 AND JULY
The Lay Life and Mission Committee has selected the Union Mission as our mission for June and July. The Union Mission is a faith-based organization providing resources to those without shelter and assisting them in building self-reliance leading to a transition to safe, affordable, and sustained housing. The Union Mission was founded in 1987 by a single individual who, in conjunction with the Latrobe Ministerial Association, saw the need for a short-term residential facility for disadvantaged men. The Mission would be a place where housing and support could be offered for those experiencing economic and/or personal crises in their life. Men do not just "stay" at the Mission. They are oriented into the community with a broader purpose and given opportunities for ongoing counseling, fellowship, group activities and much more. A box located in the Chapel will be available during June and July to donate the following items:
Financial Support (please make checks payable to Lay Life and Mission Committee), New Men’s Jockey Shorts (various sizes), Light Bulbs - 40W & 60W, Household Cleaning Items, Gift cards, One-gallon Freezer Bags, Disinfectant Wipes, Small Garbage Bags, X-Large Garbage Bags, Tennis Shoes, Paper towels, Napkins, and Toilet Paper, Laundry Detergent, White Socks, Towels and Washcloths, Hygiene Products, Men’s Clothing – various sizes (can be “slightly” used), Coats, Winter Wear (hats, gloves, etc.), Food.
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.
