Not so far from home...
Our country varies greatly from east to west, north to south, and the same is true for those who call it home. One thing we've found that remains the same is the need for God's love. National missions give us the opportunity to form relationships with those we may never have otherwise met.
Pine Ridge Reservation
The Makasan Presbyterian Church in Oglala, South Dakota, and the residents of Pine Ridge have been a blessing to those at First Presbyterian Church. For several years now, they have welcomed the members of our mission teams, and many long-lasting friendships have been formed with residents of all ages.
Our relationship with Makasan Presbyterian Church is ongoing, and we support them financially and with annual mission trips. Our mission trips are evangelistic in nature, providing a Vacation Bible School and youth rallies to the residents. Our partnership with Makasan is a two-way relationship that strengthens faith and wholeness in both Murfreesboro and Oglala.
