Connect With The World
Our Church connects to the world by sponsoring service in the community, and by providing financial and volunteer support to a wide variety of programs — locally, nationally, and internationally. We are also in the process of gaining GreenFaith certification. If you’d like to find out how to get involved, check out our volunteering page.
Within our local community, we support programs that provide physical nourishment (including the Food Pantry, the Peekskill Noon Time Meal Program, monthly meals provided to Jan Peek House, and the Midnight Run), and spiritual nourishment (including the Childrens’ Center at the Bedford Women’s Correctional Center and the Northern Westchester Women’s Resource Center). We open our doors to many community organizations that need a home, including boy scout and girl scout organizations, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Narcotics Anonymous.
Nationally, we support programs such as the More Light Presbyterians and the Rural and Migrant Ministry.
Internationally, we are involved in Bridges to Community, Amnesty International, and several other programs. We maintain an ongoing relationship with the citizens of La Oroya, Peru, supporting them in their struggle to curtail the release of poisonous waste into the local environment by a US-owned smelting operation.
As we are blessed, so we will humbly share our blessings.
Here are some reflections on what participating in our outreach activities has meant to individuals in our congregation.
