Bahamas Short Term Mission Trip
July 9 – 16, 2022
Westminster is dedicated to support our strategic ministry partner, Covenant Life Presbyterian Church (CLPC) with our time, efforts, and talents.
Prior to Covid, CLPC members worked during the school year to minister in the local public school through a literacy program that featured reading and writing tutoring. For the last two years, school moved online, but over 90% of students were not able to attend due to accessibility issues. CLPC is partnering with six U.S. churches to provide a six-week Summer Literacy Camp for these students from the local community to re-develop the relationships that were significantly hindered by Covid. This effort will enable CLPC to witness to both students and parents while providing a summer-long structured program to improve the low student literacy rates in the Bahamas. In addition, CLPC will have re-established relationships with local families that will continue when school begins in the fall and CLPC is able to re-start its tutoring program in the school system.
Westminster Presbyterian Church has committed to sending 12 people to the Bahamas in July 2022 to support one week of CLPC’s Summer Literacy Program. Will you accept the CHALLENGE?
