Mission Outreach & Volunteering

Mission Statement

Mission Outreach _ VolunteeringWe believe that God calls us to serve those around us as expressed in Rocky River Presbyterian Church’s Mission Statement- Praising God, Teaching Faith, Serving Others.

Mission is not just an activity of the church, it is the work of God. It flows through our church in all we do to help others. It is important that we involve many people to enliven this work of God through our church.

As you read through the MISSION WORK of Rocky River Presbyterian Church it is hoped that you will find an opportunity that will open your heart, and use your God given Talents.

In addition to working with our mission partners and on special projects, we contribute Special Offerings made through PCUSA. Designated Special Offerings
are collected three times a year to support PCUSA missions. These Special Offerings are:

  1. One Great Hour of Sharing (Palm Sunday) – Dollars support Presbyterian Disaster Relief, Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self Development of People.
  2. Peace and Witness Offering (World Communion)
  3. Christmas Joy Offering (during Advent) – these funds are equally divided between support of retired church workers and their families, and support of
    Presbyterian related racial ethnic schools and colleges.

For more information, or questions on any of the missions where a contact person is not shown, please contact a Mission Committee member listed below.

If you would like to participate with the Mission Committee, meetings are held monthly in the Church Parlor at 11:45AM following the Worship Service. The specific dates are shown in the Church Weekly Bulletin. Grab a cup of coffee and join us with your ideas and special interests!
