Mission and Outreach

Mission

 

God calls us to serve those around us, giving of our time and resources freely. Needs are always changing, so we will strive to keep this page updated with our current mission projects.

Ugandan Mission Work - For several years, Park Central has supported one of our members in traveling to the poor and remote villages of Uganda to minister and provide support to youth, women, and men who have been or who are victims of abuse. During the country's strict COVID lockdown, Park Central partnered with Favoured Evangelical International Ministries and Home of Praise Church in Uganda to provide cleaning supplies and masks, bags of maize, and words of hope to the people in the villages. We also worked with them to build a home for a poor widow  and her children. We look forward to growing this mission.

Church World Service – Every year we work with CWS to provide supplies to schoolchildren, survivors of natural disasters, and immigrants and refugees. We put together kits for these groups and also serve as a depot where other churches can bring their kits for CWS to pick up.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance – In times of crisis, PDA puts people on the ground, bringing help and supplies where they are needed. We are always proud to support their work in whatever way we can.

Individual International Needs – Park Central also responds to natural disasters and other one-time international needs as they arise.
