For over thirty years Christ Presbyterian Church has had a relationship with the Porcupine Presbyterian Church on the Pine Ridge Reservation, the home to the Lakota Tribe of Native Americans in South Dakota. For the last eleven years Christ Presbyterian Church has sent a mission team to Porcupine, South Dakota to help with various construction needs. We have worked with Vacation Bible School. Most importantly our teams have been able to form relationships, friendships and share Christ's love to others.
Christ Presbyterian Church supports missionaries in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Rev Bill Yoder, son of our congregation, served over 42 years as mission co-worker in Thailand. He was dean of Payap University in Chiang Mai for seven years. Bill retired in December 2007, but he continues to volunteer and serves as a regional liaison for Thailand and parts of Southeast Asia.
