Launching Summer 2018, the Craigsville Area Food Pantry and Craigsville Presbyterian Church invite you to join us in being the hands, feet and heart of Christ in Craigsville and the surrounding areas.
O.U.R. – Outreach, Understanding, Rejoicing – Hearts is an affordable short-term missions experience for churches and youth groups. We have opportunities for week-long experiences in the summer months and weekend and single day experiences year-round. Groups are housed in the church, which has full shower facilities.
What does the experience offer? Mission teams will
• Prepare for their visit through a study of the culture of generational poverty and food insecurities
• Participate in and help lead in creative worship and devotion experiences during the week
