The RCLPC mission statement applies to the young as well as the older: " ... seek to look beyond our walls and beyond ourselves - to see God's image in every face, and to serve God's people in every place life leads us."
The youth of RCLPC share in mission events with the adults of the church. Together we help with the Crystal Lake Food Pantry, the Cookie Walk, the Giving Tree, the community CROP Walk, and Souper Bowl of Caring.
The children and youth also take part in other events with their teachers and leaders. The children fill Easter baskets for Home of the Sparrow families and have made pillows for CASA kids. They collect school supplies for Church World Service kits and have helped with PADS lunches. Our middle school and high school youth groups participate in one mission opportunity per month throughout the year. Activities range from church clean up, to making and distributing care packages for the homeless, to Operation Christmas Child, to blankets for the those in nursing homes, and more. The high school youth also participate in a mission trip each year. Recent trips include the Appalachian area of Kentucky; Pawhuska, OK; and West Bend, WI.
The children and youth of RCLPC welcome new friends to join them in showing God’s love.
