2016 COSTA RICA High School Summer Mission Project BLOG
Missions has always been a huge part of the life of CPC and it’s a huge part of who we are as the Student Ministry!
We are called by Jesus to go out and make disciples of all nations. This call to make disciples is a call for us to build relationships. Missions allows us to live out that calling that Jesus gives us in so many different contexts. Missions reminds us that we can do missions wherever we go, it doesn’t mean that we have to go thousands of miles to share the Gospel.
Our Summer Mission Projects during the Summer allows our group to experience the living God as He calls us to participate in what He is already doing in the location we called to go. God has made us each unique and has provided us with different gifts and it is during these Missions Projects that God reminds us of why he calls us to go out and serve together using those gifts.
Our short-term missions projects have taken us to cities –London, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Lake Erie and Detroit and rural locations – West Virginia, upstate New York, Cranks Creek in Kentucky, Arizona to serve the Apache nation, Montana to serve the Crow nation as well as to Costa Rica and Mexico to serve alongside those in poverty in Central America.
SERVING the COMMUNITY
Our ministry helps prepare and serve breakfast for the Lamb Center (soup kitchen and homeless ministry near Fairfax Circle) on the first Saturday of every month (7:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.). We need casseroles, hard-boiled eggs, apples, bananas, and oranges, donated by the first Friday. If you are able to donate items or to go on a Saturday, please contact Pam Murdoch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
