Mission & Outreach
Jesus issued his disciples what’s known as the Great Commission. It is world-changing. We are passionate about showing the world who Jesus is. Whether it is in our community around the world, we can tangibly express God’s love and serve the world, offering him all that we are and all that we have.
At FPC Ambler, we are active in mission and outreach. We support many mission partners on across the world, and each year hundreds of people are sent beyond the church walls to serve our local, national and global mission partners and to serve those in need–in everything from cooking, cleaning, organizing, clearing, building, playing games, teaching a Bible lesson, serving in a soup kitchen, donating canned goods, and more.
Throughout the year, we have many mission opportunities available for you to participate
In developing countries, up to 80% of all illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. Our church family believes that lives can be changed by providing communities clean drinking water. In 2019 our third water system was installed in Port Salut, Haiti. In 2020 new initiatives and a partnership with Living Waters of the World will facilitate our continued mission to provide clean water to communities in need.
FPC Ambler is a church deeply rooted in the Ambler community. What better way to root yourself in the community than serving? Every fall the church gathers together and worships the Lord through serving various organizations. We've served ministries like One House at a Time, Philabundance, Mattie Dixon, Inter-Faith, and Upper Dublin High School. In 2019 we made 20,000 meals for those in need. In total, over 200 people participated in #ServeAmbler and lives were changed. Won't you join us this year?
We work with a coalition of 14 churches to provide a soup kitchen every Saturday morning in Philadelphia. You can be part of this effort by helping to prepare the meal Friday night at our church, serving the meal in Frankford on Saturday morning, or both. Contact Mark and Barb Yantek ([email protected]).
Clothing items are also needed: sweatshirts, coats, small blankets, socks and sneakers (new or clean/used in good condition.)
