Mission Outreach

Welcome to Mission Outreach!
We serve and obey God’s commands to care for the poor and the sick, and to serve the community. Our goal is to involve all members of the congregation in mission work. Please explore the missions we support, our recent news, and our upcoming events!
 

One amazing thing about Christians – and MVPC members in particular – is our willingness to reach out and help others, even when we ourselves are in need. Now is a good time to remember Jesus’ admonition in Luke. Local charities are in need of help (financial or supplies). Some for you to consider: Three Square Food Bank threesquare.org; Salvation Army salvationarmysouthernnevada.org and Family Promise fplv.org. You can find more information about supplies they need or how to donate on these organizations’ websites.

During this time of year we also, as a denomination, collect the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) donation, which supports people in need around the world, during disasters and ongoing crises. Now, more than ever, this donation is needed. Our denomination is a careful steward of our resources. For more information about OGHS check out the pcusa.org website. You can make a donation directly to PC(USA) or through MVPC. Be sure to indicate OGHS on your check to MVPC.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUING CARE OF GOD’S PEOPLE AND CREATION.

 
Due to the upcoming construction, we will be PAUSING all of our donation collections. Sunday, February 16th, will be the last Sunday to donate any items for Project 150, Westminster Food Bank, or any miscellaneous collections such as eyeglasses.
 
A new collection space will be designated once construction has been completed.  Thank you for your support.

Ongoing Programs

On the first Sunday of each month, non-perishable food items are collected for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
 
Eyeglasses
Old eyeglasses are given to a local optometrist who re-fits them to provide free glasses to school children.
 
Collection for Westminster PC
The committee also has initiated an ongoing collection program for travel size personal care items, gently-used clothing, shoes, household items, books and toys. The box will be located in Fellowship Hall and the donated goods will be taken on a weekly basis to Westminster Presbyterian Church, to be distributed during their food bank days.
