MEXICO MISSION TRIPS
For over 20 years, IRPC has supported the efforts to expand the Kingdom of Christ in Merida, Mexico. This support has been both financial and physical. In addition to annual contributions, IRPC has taken several mission trips to Merida to help build facilities needed for worship and fellowship. The picture to the left is from one of those trips.
Since 2009, GraceWay Village has served Treasure Coast residents who struggle with poverty, food scarcity, homelessness, and other tragic needs. GraceWay's formation was an outgrowth of IRPC's vision for serving unmet needs in St. Lucie County.
Its mission is to: feed those who are hungry; provide clothing to children and teens of low-income families; and conduct workshops designed to improve lives and productivity. Since 2009, GraceWay Village has served over 255,000 meals to the hungry and supplied more than 22,000 area children and teens with clothing items.
Now, GraceWay Village is planning to expand its commitment to those in-need by building a Family Restorative Living Facility for homeless families. It will provide temporary housing for families as well as conduct essential life-skill training leading to their self-sufficiency and healthy family units.
