Mercer County PA
The Mercer County team welcomes you to our OCMC 2020 Virtual Trek4Missions home page.These are surely difficult times, but our team made a pledge to raise funds to help OCMC send missionaries to the ends of the earth to preach the Gospel of Christ! Together the six Orthodox churches of Mercer County: Sts Cyril/Methodius,St John Ukranian, Holy Annunciation, St George, Holy Cross and St John Carpatho-Russian are accepting the challenge to "trek" through our community to bring awareness of Orthodox missions.
Over the next 5 weeks the members of our team will take part by doing an activity of their choice, at their own pace, and at times of their choosing. Some will jog or walk, some will bike or swim, some will post about activities of unique interest. We invite you to join in and check our participants' individual web pages regularly to monitor their progress. Please join our team as a participant, just register on this website with the code mercer1.
OCMC's mission is to obey Christ's Great Commission and make disciples of all nations by bringing people to Christ and His Church. All proceeds raised through our fundraising will go directly towards their efforts to recruit, train, send, and support Orthodox missionaries and short term teams that provide resources such as education and medical services.
OCMC is supported by individual donors like our team. Donations large and small help brings the Gospel message one step closer to reach the 1 billion people who have yet to hear the Good News. If you would like to join, help us complete our team goal by walking, running, cycling, and more, along with, raising funds for OCMC.
Together we can help bring the life-transforming Gospel into the world!
The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; Therefore, pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." (Luke 10:2)
