West Swamp has always been a mission-minded congregation, and the church today is building on its rich heritage of sharing God’s love with the people of our community and the world.
Our goals for 2017 are:
- Encourage and assist any West Swamp individual or group in pursuing any mission project or activity
- Continue to build stronger ties with these local missions:
- AHUB (Advocates for the Homeless of Upper Bucks)
- Camp Men-O-Lan
- Food Pantries (Quakertown & Trumbauersville)
- Quakertown area nursing homes
- Crossroads Community Center of Philadelphia
- Solidarity and Harmony Church of Philadelphia
- Ripple in Allentown
- Increase awareness of local and world-wide outreach opportunities and encourage participation in a timely and effective manner
Our commission does not (and cannot!) do all the mission of West Swamp alone. We encourage all our members to find a mission to get involved with and let the love of Jesus Christ work through them in whatever they may do.
