MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... help create new ministries, like The Upper Room, an extension ministry of Grace Presbyterian Church in Orleans, Ontario. This ministry, which meets in a former bar/dance hall in Rockland, Ontario, is developing good relationships with young people and their parents through a youth drop-in program, which ministers to 35 kids and has a contact list of over 100. So far, about 20 people are worshipping weekly in The Upper Room but the community is learning about the ministry through various outreach programs and new families have been joining. There are many young families in this area and many are seeking a church connection. Let us pray for The Upper Room as it reaches out to the Rockland community to share the good news of the gospel.
