Discover a truly unique mission-trip experience where you will grow in your faith while helping repair homes for people in need…all while having the time of your life!  Mission at the Eastward was created to help people in need stay in their home by doing needed repairs they could not otherwise afford to do. Located in Central Maine, MATE serves rural families and welcomes volunteers from across the Northeast and around the country. While in Maine, we can expect to work on ramps and decks, window installations, siding repair and simple roofing projects.

Midnight Run is a volunteer organization dedicated to finding common ground between the housed and the homeless. In over 1,000 relief missions per year, Midnight Run volunteers from churches, synagogues, schools and other civic groups distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City. The late-night relief efforts create a forum for trust, sharing, understanding and affection. That human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Midnight Run mission.

Central participates each month with a Run.  Food and clothing are collected during Stockpile Sundays, then distributed directly to those in need by our congregations high school youth.  To participate, please click HERE

Sharing Tree – At Christmastime, our congregation hangs gift tags on our Christmas tree, with requests for specific gifts.  The church youth take monetary donations and shop for gifts.  As volunteers take and fulfill the requests, the gifts are wrapped and delivered to the following:

La Mision Presbiteriana Nuevas Fronteras, one of our sister churches in Plainfield
