At Mountville Presbyterian Church, we consider the mission section of our annual budget to be our tithe. That is, we give one-tenth or more of our annual budget to support ministries that give help to others in need and share the knowledge of Christ both in Western Pennsylvania and internationally.
As a missional church, we believe that each of us is called by God to be a witness for God in the community and the world. Listed below are the organizations that we support. Please consider how you may personally assist them in one or more of the following ways:
Financially – You may designate some or all of your weekly giving to the church for missions. You may also give directly to any of the organizations.
Physically – You may have some time, talents, or physical items that may be useful to one or more of these organizations. If God is calling you to a more active role, contact someone on the mission committee to see how you may be of service.
Prayerfully – You may add these ministries to your prayer life. Prayer can make a difference in the world if we offer our prayers humbly and regularly.
