Loving God, Living the Word, Serving All
Welcome to Indian Trail Presbyterian Church! We are one small part of the family of God dedicated to glorifying God through worship, study, service, and fellowship. Our congregation includes folks young and old, from near and far. We have members whose parents were founders of this congregation and have never lived away from Indian Trail; and we have members who have come to us from Canada, Connecticut, Indiana, Nebraska, New York, South Africa, and Trinidad. We celebrate and thank God for the richness that our members bring from their experiences. We have a rich history of service and devotion to God, and we look to the future with excitement at the unlimited possibilities that God holds for us at the “rock” church.
MISSION & VISION
The mission of Indian Trail Presbyterian Church is to glorify God and serve Jesus as a living sacrifice, sharing God’s grace and love with others.
We commit to being a church inspired and directed by a vision of Christian discipleship, which propels us on a serious commitment to love God, to love our neighbors, and to exercise faithful stewardship of the resources of the world. And believing there is not discipleship without discipline, we pledge to engage these principles God has ordained for our spiritual growth and to commend these discipline to all members of Indian Trail Presbyterian Church.
Columbia Theological Seminary, a seminary of our denomination, is offering an Advent Journal to guide your prayer and devotional time in these days leading to Christmas. In the introduction to this resource, Leanne Van Dyk, President of the seminary, notes, “These Advent gifts are more needed now than ever as we enter into a second Advent season of disruption and loss due to a global pandemic. We have faced significant challenges this past year at the seminary and we know that you have as well. And so we long for the hope of Advent and wonder anew what God has in store for us next. We long for the peace of Advent as we are called to enter into spaces of anxiety and fear as peace-makers and peace-encouragers. We long for the joy of Advent, a joy that is rooted in God’s extravagant gift of love in Jesus Christ. This joy stretches us into our callings in ministry even when the waves of exhaustion and discouragement lap at our shores. We are rooted in love and so we bear one another’s burdens in love, receive and accept each other in love, and always forgive each other in love.”

$1 a Week for Christmas
If 50 people each gave $1.00 each for 50 weeks, there would be $2,500 in our Christmas fund, which is used to buy gifts each year for our Christmas families. Just put your dollar in one of the pew envelopes and write “Christmas” on the outside. Or, you can add it to your regular offering. One dollar per week is the goal. Give more or less as you feel inclined. If we all work together, every Christmas can be great!
Perpetual Food Drive
Baskets are available in the church vestibule for donations to our Perpetual Food Drive. Bring non-perishable, unexpired food items and place them in the baskets. Each month, the food collected is donated to Loaves & Fishes in Monroe, for distribution to the hungry of Union County.
