Missions

 

Cindy Sudnikovich, Chair


It's not just for overseas any more.  Mission is doing God's work to, with and for other people, other nations and our environment.  NPC understands that our call to give our best work is not for ourselves, but for the work of the Kingdom of God. Therefore, we are dedicated to developing and fostering partnerships with local organizations and churches in pursuit of God’s vision for the greater Nottingham and Oxford areas, spreading to the ends of the earth. This committee not only supports our missionaries through financial gifts, prayer and congregational education, but will also seek to put our own members into mission locally, regionally, nationally and globally.

 

 

Local Outreach

 

Lighthouse Youth Center

Located in downtown Oxford, the Lighthouse Youth Center provides free, nutritious meals every day and a safe place for kids 9-18 to come and hang out, get help with homework, listen to music, play games, get involved in recreational activities or get creative with art and music. 


Neighborhood Services Center

 We support Neighborhood Services with a monthly collection for their food bank. We also participate in “Redner’s Save a Tape” program.  Money earned through the purchases made by our members is solely designated for the Neighborhood Services program.

 

Compassionate Care

Through our partnership with Compassionate Care, our congregation and church friends regularly provide much needed personal items such as soaps, shampoos, toothbrushes, toothpastes, etc. to be distributed to those in need.

 

Devine Sent Food Pantry

NPC regularly donates food and other items which are used for those less fortunate.  This outreach is especially needed during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

 

World Wide Outreach


Sameritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child

Through the generous support of our congregation and church friends, we are able to provide over 100 shoe boxes filled with much needed age appropriate items that are distributed throughout the world.


Missionary and Disaster Relief

We actively participate in programs that support Missionaries doing the work of God in other countries, provide disaster relief to those facing hardships here at home and in other countries through the Presbyterian Disaster Relief Fund and other programs offered by our Synod and Donegal Presbytery.


Childfund International

Through this organization, NPC sponsors a child in Honduras. Our donation provides schooling, medical care, food, and clean water. 


World Vision

NPC participates in a matching funds program with World Vision who is dedicated to building schools and medical facilities in remote areas of the world. We also provide money to purchase sheep which provide wool for an alternate source of income and clothing for families in these same remote areas.


Sunday Morning Breakfast Rescue Mission

We support the Philadelphia area mission where Sunday meals for the hungry, hopeless and hurting are partnered with fellowship and appropriate care.


International Fellowship of Christian and Jews

Our donation provides monthly meals for those who have suffered from oppression.


American Bible Society

Donating to ABS allows our military men and women to have access to free bibles.


Special Offerings

We also participate in special offerings like “One Great Hour of Sharing”, “The Christmas Joy Offering” and others.
