MPC MISSION and OUTREACH
Morrisville Presbyterian Church takes seriously God’s call to serve our community and love our neighbor. Through our website you will find helpful information about our mission partners, as well as how you can participate in working toward God’s justice and peace. We hope you will click on the links provided to volunteer in the many ministries of this church and organizations in our region. We believe that these opportunities of compassionate action deepen our faith, provide fuller meaning in our lives, and bring us closer to one another.
Likewise, we give generously of our financial resources to mission partners, because we feel called to seek the welfare of where we live whether it be in Morrisville, Lower Bucks County, the greater Trenton area, or beyond. Through our congregational giving we support non-profits who build affordable housing, feed the hungry, and educate through sustainable farming just to name a few. We even engage in mutual aid initiatives that give directly to individuals in need through discretionary funding. Through all these actions we are conscious of God’s grace and constant call to work with others for justice, freedom, and peace. We hope you will join us by reading the information below, signing up to volunteer, or reaching out to our pastoral staff for other opportunities.
If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities, please contact Alex Lester-Abdalla at email@example.com.
