The Church Leaves the Building

The Church Leaves the Building

Monticello Presbyterian Church has exciting plans to show God’s love to the world in 2017!  Come learn about how The Church Leaves the Building on Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Mary Lou Jordan will speak during the worship service about the “new normal” for our church’s mission work.  Following worship, stay for a simple lunch of hot dogs, chips, and dessert in the fellowship hall.  There will also be fun, hands-on activities.  (You’ve probably heard of a photo bomb.  How about a Goat-o-Bomb?)  These activities will support next year’s mission workcamps:

  • An intergenerational workcamp in Honduras with Honduras Outreach International, Inc., July 1 – 8
  • Middle school workcamp with Cross Ministries in Charlotte, NC (Myers Park Presbyterian Church), June 4 – 9
  • Senior high workcamp in Little Rock, AR with Heifer Project and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance at Ferncliff Conference Center – June 18-23
  • Kindergarten -5th grade workcamp in Middle Georgia and other local sites  – July 24-28


We care about our community and the world beyond.  Come and learn about the “new normal” as we offer opportunities for all ages to share God’s love.


Sunday School Short Term Study on the Belhar Confession


Beginning February 5, we will have a short term study on the Belhar Confession during Sunday School led by Belle McMaster. Belhar is the latest Confession  approved by the Presbyterian Church, USA in June, 2016. It comes from the Dutch Reformed Mission Church in South Africa.  Confessions tell us what our church believes. The theme of Belhar is reconciliation. The four week study will be held on February 5, 12, 19, and 26 in the Fellowship Hall.  All are welcome!
