At the February 22 Presbytery Meeting, the Mission Interpretation Ministry Team is asking each congregation to make a pledge to Shared Mission of the Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly.  Each of these councils conducts mission. The Presbytery trains and equips leaders for ministry. Your mission dollars also support ministry with youth and young adults on the college campus and in the city of Detroit (Barnabas Youth Opportunities and the Second Mile Center).
