What We Do
White Rock Presbyterian concentrates its efforts in five Ministry areas:
Making all of us better disciples by teaching knowledge of God and of His Word, love of God and neighbor, and the right use of our time, talent, and treasure in the service of God.
The Discipleship Ministry teaches us all about God, his son Jesus Christ, and what they have to tell us in scripture. Key to this is the love of God as well as the love of our neighbors. Discipleship also helps us to identify our spiritual talents, how to use those talents as well as our time, and the incredible treasure we find in serving our Lord Jesus Christ.
Providing the best opportunities to enjoy and serve God (each Sunday and on special occasions), in singing, praying, hearing God's Word, and offering ourselves to His glory.
The Worship Ministry gives to us every Sunday the best possible opportunities to not only enjoy the worship service, but to serve God wile participating in the worship service. This ministry reviews and suggests songs to be sung, prayers to offer, what topics we might hear about in sermons, and how to help us worship Him best every week here at the church.
Being God's "family" by establishing a climate of love and concern for one another, welcoming everyone into it, and seeing that each one's need for individual fellowship is met.
The Fellowship Ministry helps our church family to be part of God's family by creating and maintaining love and concern for our members, both church and extended in the community. This ministry strives to welcome everyone from the community into our church family, working for the care of our members and extending opportunities for fellowship.
Testifying, in words of good news and deeds of love, to God's saving love in Christ to the world beyond our church, from White Rock to the ends of the earth.
The Mission Ministry strives to confirm God's love through his son Jesus Christ in both the proclamation of His good news and deeds of love. They also work to proclaim salvation through Jesus Christ to the world beyond the walls of White Rock Presbyterian Church.
The Evangelism Ministry of White Rock Presbyterian Church includes all of those activities by which our members serve as instruments of the Holy Spirit in drawing people to Jesus. The work of this ministry is directed in large part by the words that Jesus spoke to his disciples after his resurrection: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
Evangelism Ministry activities include teaching and learning the scriptural and theological foundations of evangelism, participating faithfully in the work of the Mission Ministry, strengthening the visibility and communication strategies of White Rock Presbyterian Church, and learning ways to effectively talk about Christ in personal encounters with others.
