Mission Trips
  • An Annual Medical Mission Trip is taken in late January or early February. We served in Haiti from 2010 until 2018. In 2020, we began serving in Guatemala. The January 2021 trip to Guatemala’s Porch de Solomon has been postponed due to the pandemic. The hope is to go in September or October. Email Rev. Mark Lampley with any questions.
  • Additional Mission Trips are scheduled as needed. Past trips have included day trips to outlying counties to install clean water systems, work trips to Mexico, and various trips in Tennessee through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) which is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). PDA enables congregations and mission partners of the PC(USA) to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis and catastrophic events. The focus is on the long-term recovery of disaster impacted communities and provides training and disaster preparedness for presbyteries and synods.
