Mission Projects

 

Mission projects provide ways of ministering God's love to people in and beyond our church.

Faith Presbyterian Church currently supports several mission projects including:
     Acacia Dinners
      Habitat for Humanity
      Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN)
      Trash to Treasure
(recycling and garage sale)
     Mission Trips
For more information on these projects please refer to their separate pages via the links above.

An additional ministry is Angel Tree, a ministry of Prison Fellowship.  Every November we receive the names of about two dozen children in our community who have parents incarcerated.  A small "tree" is placed in the Narthex with 3 "angels" per child identifying things they want for Christmas.  Members of the congregation take the angels, purchase and wrap the gifts, and deliver them to the church in time for the Angel Tree Christmas Party, held in mid-December.  Our GE teens set up several activities for the children, and Santa Claus comes to deliver the gifts.

Food Pantry:  Faith Church shares food donated on Sunday mornings with Northern Churches Care, which assists local people in need.  Pantry needs vary and may be highlighted in our Sunday bulletins. 

Pueblo Presbytery Mission Fund - The Presbytery of Pueblo celebrated its 125th Anniversary by creating a special Mission Fund on November 5, 2006.  In celebration of this anniversary, the presbytery established a goal of raising $125,000 for designated missions locally, nationally and globally.  The four designated projects are the "Pueblo Hispanic Mission Initiative," the "New Building for Grace Community Church" in Falcon, the national mission grant for continued hurricane relief along the Gulf Coast, and an international relief and mission team program to Nicaragua.  Donations can be given to the campaign as a whole or can be designated to individual programs. 

Crop Walk 2009:  This year's Crop Walk was on Sunday, October 11 at 1:00 pm at America the Beautiful Park.  Faith was one of 15 churches sponsoring the Crop Walk for Colorado Springs.  Money raised from pledges for the walk goes to Church World Services, an agency that provides food and water to third world countries or wherever disaster strikes.  25% of the money raised is returned to our own community through Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN).
   It was a snowy, icy, cold day, but the walk went ahead as scheduled.  As 1 of 11 congregations who participated (9%), Faith Church provided 25% of the total walkers and raised 14% of the total financial contribution in 2009.
