What We Do
We do essentially four things: (1) We gather on the Lordís day to worship together and welcome old friends and new. (2) We support our church and its programs with our time, money, and energy so that we may continue to receive and spread the Word. (3) We maintain and strengthen a network of caring, loving relationships to support members of our congregation and the community. (3) We support local, national, and international benevolent projects.
Almost everyone gets actively involved in some way in deciding what our churchís program will be and in making it happen. Groups, both formal and informal, have a voice in governance. The elders and deacons get input from all their committees as well as from the Presbyterian Women, the circles, the choir, the youth group, the Sunday school classes, and concerned individuals.
We support each other emotionally and socially in our Sunday school classes, through circles, at monthly socials on Sunday mornings, picnics, pitch-in dinners, ice cream socials, special music programs, special Bible studies and when we celebrate weddings, baptisms, and funerals. Our members support an active prayer chain that keeps us aware of the special prayer and personal support needs of our friends and their families.
Our members are personally and financially active in supporting the local Bridgewater Food Pantry, the outreach ministries of the Circleville and Seneca Rocks Presbyterian churches, the Presbyterian Campus Ministry in the Central Shenandoah Valley, the Stokesville Food Pantry, Mercy House, and Habitat for Humanity. In addition, we make monetary contributions to the Gidada Bible School in Ethiopia, students of St. Matthias parish School in Haiti, and Mt. Sinai Baptist Church in Elkton, Virginia.
