Ministry at Tyger River is what we do in service to God’s Mission, and it’s where we need your help, your gifts, and your participation. At Tyger River, we believe that all members are ministers and that God's Mission invites your Ministry!
The Christian Education Team is responsible for developing and implementing the entire educational ministry of Tyger River Presbyterian Church, as we seek to nurture disciples of Jesus Christ and help equip them for ministry and service in the world. The team meets regularly for prayer and creative planning to meet the educational needs of this congregation.
Building & Grounds
