By Colin Howland, Director of Music and Organist

Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into His presence with singing!—Psalm 100:2.

By Pattie Lee Stava, Team Co-leader

 

More often than not, when discussing missions in Asia, the countries that are mentioned are China and Japan. As we know, there are more than these two countries that make up the geographical area known as Asia, one of which is Taiwan. The Presbyterian Church and Taiwan have a long-standing history. In fact, the Presbyterian Church is the largest Christian denomination in Taiwan. It started in the…

Rachel Macolino, 9th grade

There is a special kind of tired that I’ve only ever found on Missions trips. This was my second year on Maranatha missions, and I had the privilege to be on both the Spruce Hill team and the Northeast team. Before the trips began, I thought that this year would be easier than last year, because I had more experience, but…

Lord I Need You!

By Doug Logan, Lead Pastor of Epiphany Fellowship Church, Camden, New Jersey

 

I thank God for my African-American church upbringing. Mainly, I love the deep emotions in expression during musical worship at any gathering of the church but particularly the Sunday morning service. In my experience, many of the church hymns spoke directly to the urban/African-American situation on the block and in the lives of the inner-city dwellers. I remember the reality of the challenges like poverty, pain, racism…
