Puerto Rico
Mission Trip Update

Nine members of Charleston Atlantic Presbytery went to Puerto Rico on a mission trip March 4-11 to repair homes damaged from Hurricane Marie and more storms. These members represented six churches in the presbytery: Lowcountry, James Island, Mount Pleasant, Summerville, Palmetto, and St. James. The two from Lowcountry were JR Wilson and Lila Wright. 

Work included painting inside and out, pressure washing, scraping, tiling a bathroom and living areas, screen repair and general cleanup. The team worked on two homes both with major water damage and non-livable for years; one home 10 minutes from host house, close to the coast, and second home 50 minutes away in the mountain area. Team stayed at PDA Host House in San Juan next to the Presbyterian church. The team worshipped on Sunday at the Levittown Presbyterian Church that CAP helped repair after Hurricane Maria, with several participating in worship.

We support local missions and missions beyond. Our support is given through in-person volunteering, financial donations, and (in non-pandemic times) use of our church buildings.


Organizations that use our buildings are charitable and non-profit. Some examples are AA, Family Promise of Beaufort County, Bluffton Self Help, Hospice Bereavement Group, NAMI, and Neighborhood Outreach Connection (NOC)


We also share our facilities with other congregations and faiths to provide a quality place of worship for all, such as Temple Oseh Shalom and Centro Victoria Church.

We highlight an organization each month to support our Change-Can-Make-A-Change program, which accepts financial donations, as well as periodic drives for school supplies, shoes, and clothing. 


Our Missions Beyond Ministry has sent mission teams to Louisiana, New Jersey, both North and South Carolina, and Haiti to aid in the disaster recovery efforts following devastating hurricanes and massive flooding.
