Missions | Misiones

WE BELIEVE that to follow Christ means practicing extravagant generosity. We support an annual missions budget that provides funds to local, regional, national, and international aid organizations. /// CREEMOS que seguir a Cristo significa practicar una generosidad extravagante. Apoyamos un presupuesto anual de misiones que provee fondos para organizaciones de ayuda locales, regionales, nacionales e internacionales. 

OUR YOUTH GROUP AND WOMEN'S ASSOCIATIONS volunteer their time at local shelters, partnering with other churches and social service agencies. We participate in collections of food and clothing for the Night Ministry, Heartland Alliance, Sarah's Circle and Howard Area Community Center. /// NUESTRA JUVENTUD Y LAS ASOCIACIONES DE MUJERES ofrecen su tiempo en albergues locales, en asociación con otras iglesias y agencias de servicio. Participamos en colectas de comida y ropa para organizaciones locales de servicio social.

WE SHARE OUR BUILDING with several partners which also have missions to serve others: Chicago Bible Society provides free and low cost Bibles to individuals who need the Word of God. Still Point Theatre Collective creates performance and educational opportunities by providing theatre for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women, as well as adults with developmental disabilities. Chicago Montessori fosters in young people the importance of serving others through their educational programs, and partners with Ravenswood Presbyterian Church by directing an Organic Community Garden and sustainable agriculture education program. A portion of the organic produce is donated to local food pantries, such as Lakeview Pantry and Common Pantry. /// COMPARTIMOS NUESTRO EDIFICIO con varios socios que también tienen como su misión el servir a la comunidad.
