Missions

 

At Marcellus First Presbyterian Church, we believe that we are meant to live out our faith in the world. We are very active in mission projects that give each one of us the chance to make a difference. Our members work together in a variety of one-time and recurring mission giving opportunities. 

In 2020, the following places/organizations received a portion of our Mission Pledge:

  • Blessings in a Backpack; Theological Education Fund; Children of the Father’s House; Presbyterian Peace Fellowship; Presbyterian Disaster Assistance;  Samaritan Center; In My Father’s Kitchen;  Food Bank of CNY; Sleep in Heavenly Peace;  Interfaith Works;  CNY Diaper Bank;  Light a Candle for Literacy; Marcellus Rotary; Isaiah’s Table; Rise Above Poverty @ Community.

 

Some of our recurring outreach missions beyond our local congregation are:

 

SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering beds to children (ages 3-17) in need in the greater Syracuse area. We believe in sharing the need with the community and then providing ways for the community to help meet that need. Since our first delivery on October 6th, 2018 we have delivered over 1460 beds…and counting!  At MFPC, we collect sheets, comforters and bedding kits to accompany the beds when they are delivered.

 

 

STS. PETER AND JOHN EPISCOPAL CHURCH

On the second Sunday of each month, we make sandwiches and deliver them to Sts. Peter and John Church in Auburn, NY for their soup kitchen community outreach program.

 

 

 

CENTER FOR NEW AMERICANS

During the winter months we collect jackets, hats and mittens for refugees new to our winter climate and our Knitting for Peace group knits hats to donate to the center, the Samaritan Center and other agencies providing a little warmth to their clients.

 

 

MARCELLUS ECUMENICAL FOOD PANTRY

The Marcellus Ecumenical Food Pantry, which is housed in our building, serves residents in the Marcellus school district. We support the food pantry with regular food donations and Thanksgiving turkeys.

 

 

 

 

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

We raise funds by co-sponsoring the Marcellus Ecumenical Habitat for Humanity Chicken Barbecue each fall.

 

 

 

 CHRISTMAS ANGELS

For many years, we have partnered with the Seals Center at Kirk Park on the south side of Syracuse to give the gift of pajamas at Christmas to kids in the after-school program.
