Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church's mission programs are rooted in our understanding of what is required of us as followers of Christ. We must demonstrate our love for God, going beyond words to action. Mission is one of the key ways we extend love to our neighbors, especially those whom Jesus descirbed as "the least" among us.
Whether we are feeding the hungry or building homes for our neighbors in need here in Plainfield or traveling to work alongisde our neighbors in New Orleans or the nation of Cameroon, we are guided by the need to be the hands and feet of Christ. We are also keenly aware that, in seeking to help those with whom we are in mission, our own hearts and minds are transformed.
We "do mission" because we want to serve others. We return surprised at how the experience has helped and changed us. Mission accelerates spiritual growth!
