The Embrace Ministry Team seeks to be the “hands and feet of Christ to the least of these” in the Sumter community, the region, and the larger world. Identifying specific areas in which to create avenues of cooperation and partnership that witness to God’s intention for peace, justice, compassion evident of a new community, the Engage Ministry Team is responsible both hands-on, as well as financial support for:
- services and mission within the local/regional area
- the mission of the larger church – both PC (USA) and ecumenical – including special offerings
- global mission – especially where we have PC (USA) mission workers – where we may serve as partners with local entities in that part of the world.
Collaborating with the Director and Staff of First Presbyterian Church’s Preschool to embrace the children and their parents during these early years, the Embrace Ministry Team seeks to identify other possible partnerships within the community where our resources – both financial and hands- on – may extend ministry beyond what either of us is capable.
