Mission Outreach and Congregational Care

We are a community of believers that care about each other. We provide rides and meals to those in need. We serve communion to the homebound. Besides taking care of  our own we also reach out to those in the community.  Providing care and support to those among us and around us through fellowship, friendship, and acts of compassion is what Jesus calls us to do.

This is a church active in the world that cares about making a difference and seeks to demonstrate how God's love can change lives.

Third Presbyterian Church has a designated mission project each month which is headed up by the Presbyterian women. This includes collecting items for those in need such as: blankets for the homeless, food for migrant workers on the Eastern Shore, suitcases for the women's shelter, sandwiches for St. Columba, helping VA vets in Hampton Roads and helping other local Norfolk churches with NEST and outreach projects.

In the last few years we have added the Labyrinth Garden, Labyrinth, the Clothes Closet, and a fairly new a Lending Library Box and Food Pantry Box out front of the church for those in need. 

Labyrinth

All are welcome to visit and use our Prayer Labyrinth, which is located behind the church. Prayerfully walk the path. At each turn, pause for prayer or reflection.

What is a Prayer Labyrinth?

It is a pattern or maze-style pathway designed for an active prayer experience.

Free clothing to those in need!  usually the 2nd Saturday of the month 10 AM to 12 NOON . Cleaning your closet? Donate your gently used clothing to this needed ministry. No more than 5 at a time due to COVID-19 Masks are required.

 

DUE TO COVID-19 we have expanded our hours by appointments, please call or the church or email jessica@pcusa-peva.org. Masks are required in the building.

Donations are also accepted to support local mission programs of the church.
