Mission Moment – Sunday, July 31
God has done amazing things at Montreal West Presbyterian Church in Quebec!
Over the past few years, with support from Presbyterians Sharing, the church has
transitioned into a thriving multicultural ministry filled with energy and hope. Though the
congregation has already done much good work in bringing a new vision and vitality to
the church, they aren’t stopping there. They have their sights set to the future,
wholeheartedly embracing youth ministry and seeing and treating their youth as the
leaders of tomorrow. This new focus on youth ministry has youth participating in all
levels of governance and worship leadership, and the transformation continues.
