Missions

Mission Work of Lansing Presbyterian Church:
In our effort to seek, to share and to serve Christ, Lansing Presbyterian Church supports local, national and international mission projects . Along with other South Suburban Presbyterian Churches (Mission Council 8) we are able to bring forth His Kingdom by helping serve:

Lansing Food Pantry
For many years, we have supported this worthwhile and much needed cause.  Our congregation focuses on collecting non perishable items that are often overlooked.  In John 21:17, Jesus tells us, "Feed my sheep."  His flock is hungry and we are called to feed the people of God.

Hearts in Motion (H.I.M.)

Karen Scheeringa, a former member of our congregation, has developed a ministry in the rural areas of Guatemala. When our church first met Karen, she was leading mission groups to Guatemala twice a year. Now she is up to seventeen trips a year and has offices for H.I.M. in multiple states as well as her office here. She takes teams of doctors to do medical clinics and surgeries of all types. She has also built an orphanage, a feeding center and a school. She has taken teams of firemen and paramedics with her to train the men in Guatemala.

The Jones Community Center

Jones is mission in our own back yard. This is a community center in the heart of Chicago Heights, Illinois like an oasis in the middle of a very deprived area. Children in that community have a safe haven in the Jones Center.  Children are welcomed after school for tutoring, activities and even dinner. The center is open to the children for a variety of programs and each Friday, a meal is served there for the homeless. The center is an amazing place for ministry.  For more information, please visit their website at www.jonescenter.org

Our church has supported Jones for many years. We are part of a covenant group with the Chicago Presbytery to help raise money for their programs. Teams of people have spent many hours at the center painting, cleaning, building a computer room, building a playground, and tutoring the children. For several years, we have been delivering stockings to the center filled with surprises for Christmas.

In addition to these “hands-on” missions, LPC supports the work of:

Once a year for a few years now, a mission group travels from local Presbyterian churches to Sisseton, South Dakota to work on an Native American Reservation. Among the projects: helping pass out food that was collected and brought there; building and repairs and running a vacation bible school.  We support this mission and its good work.
