2017 Youth Group Safe Harbor Dinner

Angel Tree  – The Deacons set up an “Angel Tree” annually to provide Christmas gifts to families referred to us by local service agencies.

Ark Soup Kitchen  – We provide a Saturday luncheon meal annually for this soup kitchen based out of Trinity Episcopal Church in Easton.

“Make It – Take It” Kitchen  – We host periodic Make It – Take It events in our church kitchen and fellowship hall to help low-income families learn to prepare healthy meals on a budget. Participants leave with the food they prepared that day and with the tools and groceries to replicate the recipes at home.

Presbyterian Coffee Project – We serve Equal Exchange Coffee during the coffee hour on Sundays! For each pound of fairly traded coffee, chocolate, tea, and foods Presbyterians purchase through the Coffee Project, 15 cents per pound goes to the PCUSA’s Small Farmer Fund. The total Small Farmer Fund amounted to $11,819.30 in 2016 alone.

Worldwide Mission  – We have a partnership with the Nagyvarad-Ret Hungarian Reformed Church of Oradea, Romania. The Nagyvarad-Ret pastor has visited us with his family, and members of our congregation have visited the Romanian congregation. This partnership was established in 2003.
