Mission

God is always moving in God’s world.  Our job as Christians is to learn to see what God is up to and get on board with that.  That’s what we call mission.  Below are some of the places we see God working, and ways you can get on board, too.

Outreach

Seeking to serve others in the name of Christ.

  • With the close of the Connect-by-Night program as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have begun supporting Project Share by preparing and delivering bagged lunches on a weekly basis every other month.
  • We love spending time with, eating and sharing with the Darby Mission in Darby Borough.  The Darby Mission runs after-school programs, and hosts a meal at the Darby Borough Recreation Center every Tuesday night.  We love to participate and help out any way we can every time we can.  Email us to find out how you can help.
  • In collaboration with House Cup Coffee Roasters, we have developed our own coffee blend – Apostle’s Cup. All profits from coffee sales go directly to support our friends at the Darby Mission.
