Serving People in Our Community

Serving at SPC

God sends the Church to show compassion in the world: feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, visiting prisoners, freeing captives, sheltering the homeless, welcoming strangers, comforting those who mourn, and being present with all who are in need. These acts of compassion, done corporately or individually, are the work of the Church as the body of Christ. We are called to minister directly to people’s immediate hurts and needs. We are also called to confront and challenge systems that perpetuate human misery. We participate in Christ’s compassionate ministry through local acts of witness and advocacy, through the programs of the larger church, and in cooperation with other agencies and organizations committed to human welfare. – PC(USA) Book of Order

At SPC we seek to live out God’s call on our lives and on the church by Serving People in our Community. We do this through many different avenues, including: our Food Pantry, Community Dinners, by volunteering and helping to fund the Y Healthy Kids Network program, and hosting community fun events. We also provide annual mission funds and gifts of kind to local mission organization including:. The Coalition for Care, the Salvation Army, the Vertical 196 warming shelter, and others. We are always looking for new ways to serve our community.
