Local Missions

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

The Woodside Project
 
Teams are invited to participate in a work week in the Honesdale area, completing construction projects in the community while deepening relationships with Christ.  Projects within this small community will aid the elderly and the economically disadvantaged. Mission Teams will also spend time at the new Woodside Mission & Retreat Center, assisting in its completion and enjoying the surrounding beauty of God’s creation. Teams will stay at The Vineyard Center, a First Presbyterian Church Ministry Facility. The Vineyard Center is an 18,000 square foot building, complete with a gym, bunks, kitchen and locker rooms. Lots of opportunities for fellowship, outings and fun help to make Honesdale Mission Trips memorable.

MISSION TRIPS

 
FPCH sends at least three mission teams out each year as part of our vision to be proactive in spreading the Gospel and in building relationships.  Team members have found that participation in a mission trip is one of the most transformational experiences in the Christian journey.  During the summer of 2017, there were 70 people who stepped out in faith and served on a mission trip.  There was a team of women who traveled to Cumberland, MD and a team of adults who served in Calcutta, OH. 
 
Our Middle School kids went to Pittsburgh, and the High School students traveled to Michigan.  Each year our students return with many amazing stories of experiencing God powerfully.
