Our Vision

Faith in Action  

Church of the Western Reserve is committed to hands-on opportunities to help make God’s love known in the world.   In addition to monetary contributions, we look for ways for church members to live the faith by reaching out to a hurting world.  All ages participate!   Our children are encouraged to participate in once-a-month Mission Sundays when they leave the worship service, to work on specific mission projects.

Mission Trips – Every year in June, our youth and adult chaperones travel to a region of our country for one week to help the people of those areas rebuild their lives after experiencing great losses: Gulfport, Mississippi; Wheeling, West Virginia; Peever, South Dakota; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Louisville, Kentucky are all beneficiaries of our hands-on mission trips.

Denominational Support – Our annual financial offerings to the Presbyterian Church (USA) help support our denomination Worldwide Ministries of disaster assistance, medical benevolence and aid to those areas of the world affected by natural disasters.
