Mission at FPCE

Mission Committee meets on the Fourth Monday from 7:00pm - 8:30pm in the Church Library

Jesus called them to him, saying “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the Kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child, shall not enter it.”

Luke 18:16-17

About Mission Committee:

Our dedicated Service Commission and Mission Commitee members work tirelessly and faithfully to bring the glory of the Kingdom of heavan to those in need. Our church gives generoursly to the PC(USA) connectional missions; General Assembly Unified, Synod Unified and Presbytery Unified Misisons. These mission causes directly influence and support the work of the Presbyterian church near and far.

What We Do:

Community Mission and Ministry has become a major emphasis for our work and support here in and around Everett, Washington. Every week our dedicated volunteers serve meals in unprecedented numbers to the marginalized in society with Dinner at the Bell. Your donations of time, gifts and talents also support our unique programs Toiletries for Dignity and Showers to the People. Our work in the community here and abroad continues through generous support for VOA/Super Bowl, CROP WALK, Interfaith Family Shelter and Mar Elias Education Foundation/Pilgrims of Ibillin in Palestine. Offerings that often do not make front-page news, but are just as dear to our cause are: Christmas Joy, One Great Hour of Sharing, Pentecost and Peacemaking and Heifer Project.

"Hands-On" Mission trips continue to excite us all (young and old). Previous mission trips include:

 - Making a significant contribution last summer to clearing land under threat from non-native species in Eastern Oregon

- Traveling to Haiti to work with the orphanage HIS Home for Children along with the PC (USA) Haiti Mission Network
