Park Presbyterian Church will host a Serrv shop sale and luncheon to benefit its mission project in Mexico from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 13 at South Main Emporium, 604 S. Main St., Newark.
The $5 lunch will feature Mexican fare, American sandwiches and a brownie dessert. Dine-in and takeout options will be available.
The church has established mission partnerships with Living Waters For the World, the global mission ministry of the Synod of the Living Waters PC(USA) and a mission church in Limones, Quintana Roo, Mexico, to install a purified water plant to provide clean, safe drinking water for their community.
In 2016, a mission team from Park Church traveled to Bacalar, Quintana Roo, Mexico, in 2016 to re-establish relationships with Presbyterians at Mision Sinai de Limones, a worksite of former Geneva Presbytery mission trips in Mexico. The team heard the site’s request to partner with them in mission ministry to provide clean water for their community of 5,000 through Living Waters for the World.
The mission team, led by the Rev. Kirk Baker, returned home to pray over and discuss the project. In January, the church entered a covenant relationship with Living Waters for the World. In February, the mission team returned to Limones and established a covenant with Mision Sinai to become partners in a water ministry.
Park Church has already raised funds to construct the building which will house the Living Waters system equipment. The upcoming fundraiser will contribute to the $10,000 cost of the reverse osmosis system equipment and the 12-member team’s accommodations when they travel to Mexico in 2018.
