Ways to Give

A central goal of the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville is to live out a Ministry of Compassion in our own community and outside our community‚ÄĒlocally, nationally and globally.

God sends the church in the power of the Holy Spirit to exercise compassion in the world, feeding the hungry, comforting the grieving, caring for the sick, visiting the prisoners, freeing the captives, sheltering the homeless, and befriending the lonely.

(The Presbyterian Church (USA) Book of Order W-7.3001).

Acts of compassion, done corporately and individually, are the work of the church as the body of Christ. The church is called to minister to the immediate needs and hurts of people. The church is also called to engage those structures and systems which create or foster brokenness and distortion. Christians respond to these calls through acts of advocacy and compassion, through service in common ministries of the church, and through cooperation with agencies and organizations committed to these ends (W-7.3003).

The mission and service of the church includes financial support of a wide variety of local, national, and international ministries: food, medical and housing programs; colleges; chaplaincies; urban churches; counseling and tutoring programs; peacemaking; and emergency aid.

The focus of our giving beyond the doors of the church pays particular attention to persons who live with poverty, disease, and under the powers of injustice and oppression.
