Our Congregation is engaged in Mission and is directly responsible for contributing to the success of other organizations important to this community. There is great pride associated with many of our past efforts.
Among groups that have received our help are:
W - House - a residential half-way house for chemically dependent women has received considerable support, especially at critical points in the life of this program.
Turning Point - provides support and training for people formerly institutionalized for mental illness. Turning Point helps mainstream these individuals back into regular society by helping them learn to cope with independent living. Our Church provided office space and administrative support during its start up phase.
Hospice of Washington County - benefited from our office space and administrative support for the first twelve years of its existence in Washington County. Last year Hospice had grown to the point that it needed to have its own identity and facilities. It relocated to its own facilities in March 1993.
No sooner did Hospice announce its decision to relocate than our Church responded to a request by a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity (also initiated through efforts from within our congregation) for office support.
REACH – a local homeless shelter and soup kitchen that operates throughout the winter months.
There are many other Mission activities sponsored by various organizations within our congregation. Organizations, such as Presbyterian Women, Deacons, and CYD sponsor mission activities whose funding are not part of the Church operating budget.
