Currently we support 3 Mission & Outreach Opportunities, as well as financially supporting 4 PC(USA) Mission Offerings. Read a little about each Mission & Outreach Opportunity on this page and see where God might be calling you to get involved.
Good Works, Inc.
Our mission is to extend God’s love to families living in substandard housing;
to make homes warmer, safer, and drier;
to replace hopelessness with the hope of Jesus Christ.
Our vision is to eliminate substandard housing in Chester County.
Sign up to be a part of a Saturday Work Crew. We gather in Coatesville to get our assignments and then head out for a day of work, where our lives will be touched just as much as the lives we will touch.
All those workers need to be fed – maybe you can help in preparing some lunches.
While most of the labor is donated, financial gifts are needed to help pay for the materials to fix up the homes. Individuals and churches are needed to partner with Good Works to help provide the financial backing to continue to reach those in need.
Parkesburg Community of Churches Outreach & Octorara Area Food Cupboard
The PCCO (http://www.parkesburgchurchescommunityoutreach.org/) operates a clothing store, Righteous Clothing, on Main Street in Parkesburg. This ministry is overseen by the Parkesburg Methodist Church (610-857-9422). Please call the church for hours of operation and items that can be donated.
The PCCO also maintains a storage shed for furniture that is collected and then distributed to those in need. The Church of the Ascension (610-857-9176) oversees this ministry. If you have furniture to donate or would be willing to help in transportation and delivery of furniture please call the church.
Financial help is available to those who need help paying housing or utility bills. Volunteers from the PCCO work with people in identifying county and state programs that are available to them, while also helping in emergency situation. Financial contributions are always welcomed and appreciated to help meet the ever growing needs of many in our community.
The PCCO also works with the Octorara Area Food Cupboard, located at 714 West Main Street, Parkesburg Pa., 610-857-4000. The OAFC provides food to those in the Octorara area school district. Please call for times of operation for the food cupboard.
The Mission of B.O.L. is to demonstrate the love of Christ by providing quality medical care and sharing with the people of Haiti the saving Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rebuilding takes money, lots of money. Financial contributions are greatly appreciated to continue the good work that has begun, and to assure that it will continue. Donations of materials and supplies are also appreciated. Visit the website and click on the “Our Project” tab, and then click on “Clini-Med Items” to find a list of needed tools and materials.
Or maybe you have building or medical skills and you are up for the challenge of going to Haiti to truly be the hands and feet of God in that country. Maybe you are being called to go work side by side with Haitian people, not just rebuilding buildings, but rebuilding lives. Contact Alyce Denver to discuss opportunities and possibilities that exist for this to happen.
