As a member of the Presbytery of WNC, we participate in mission partnerships in Guatemala, Malawi, and Madagascar. We have partnered with the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in La Blanca, Guatemala for almost a decade, providing scholarship support to hundreds of young people. We have gained great friendship and encouragement through the hospitality received on our visits to La Blanca.
Believing that God is active beyond the walls of the church, we seek to partner with agencies that promote justice and reconciliation beginning here in Asheville and throughout Western North Carolina.
Through our fifty year partnership with the Child Care Center, we have sought to provide quality care for thousands of children and families.
We also house Asheville Youth Mission which provides transformative experiences for young people who stay in our facilities for mission retreats.
2017 “CREATING SPACE” INSTALLATION IN THE Powell ATRIUM
This year Asheville Youth Mission participants are exploring how our city is “Creating Space” for people experiencing homelessness and poverty. At the end of the week, each group reflects on the spaces they visited. They design and decorate a building with symbols that describe what they have learned and ways they will continue creating space at home.
Be sure to check out the "Creating Space" art instillation in the Atrium!
