  1. Mission Trip Blog : Thursday Evening Devotional 6/28

    Thursday Evening, June 28th, 2012

    Location: First Presbyterian Church, Pottstown, PA

    Offered by: Claire Leadbetter   
    Prayer Partner: Laurie Leadbetter

    Scripture: Colossians 3:16-17

    "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

    This applies to our trip because it says we should help each other and teach each other new things, which we will all have to do throughout this week. It also says that the work that we will be doing is done in the name of God.

    First Prebyterian PottstownRitas with FPC YouthWe are so excited to begin our mission trip to Heifer International Farm in Rutland, MA! Before we start learning the ways and means of farming and growing our own food, we must take a quick stop in Pottstown,PA. We’ve just arrived to a welcomed by a group of friendly youth from First Pres. They treated us to a delicious snack of Rita’s Italian Ice! They then put their skills to the test and prepared taco’s for us- very yummy! Tomorrow we start working in smaller groups and volunteering in inner-city mission centers. We’re so
    excited to embark on this very special
    journey! See y’all soon!

  3. Mission Trip Blog : We are on our way!

    Youth Mission Trip 2012 Group Photo This morning we left for our first stop: First Presbyterian Pottstown. Thanks to all the people who came to send us off!

    Our scripture this morning came from Ephesians 4:1-6:

    "I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all."

    May we remember that all of us – us on our trip and you praying for us at home – are one in the Spirit. Thanks be to God who binds all of our hearts together in love.

    In the name of Christ who sends us out to serve,
