Local Ministries

Sinking Spring Presbyterian Church participates in several mission type projects in our local area such as Faith in Action which sponsors a local food bank.

In the summer of 2006 some of our youth accompanied by Elizabeth Lowe went on a mission trip to West Virginia. Another young person went on a mission trip to a Native American Reservation in the western United States.

We have also hosted events including suppers and holiday celebrations for the local Social Club whose members are handicapped in some way.

Our Presbyterian Women  Circles participate in many outreach missions.




Satellite Ministries

Satellite Ministries- Our congregation serves two of the local health care / retirement facilities as beyond the church door ministries

These opportunities to care for some of our shut-ins, as well as to spread the Gospel message to those in need, but who are unable to attend their own churches on a weekly basis.

Ministriesalso include raising funds for worthy causes such as cancer research through the Relay for Life.

Food Pantry

SSPC collects canned fruit for the food pantry.

Matthew 25:35
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...





Ecumenical Faith in Action

Sinking Spring Presbyterian Church is one of several local churches who sponsor Ecumenical Faith in Action.  Two  ways SSPC helps the food panty is by bagging groceries and contributing canned fruit that can brought to our church.

I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was alone and away from home, and you invited me into your house. I was without clothes, and you gave me something to wear. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.”  Matthew 25:35,36

The two little boys came in to the office hoping to get some food for their family, but it was Medical Mission day and the pantry  wasn't set up for food distribution.  The volunteers felt compassion for the boys and went about gathering a few things into bags to hand to the children.  They sorted through the bags and found a big jar of peanut butter. As they were leaving, a volunteer ran after them and handed them a loaf of bread.  As the boys started walking towards home the younger one looked up at his brother and said, “Oh, Bryan—did you see this?  We'll get to have supper tonight.”
