Serving Around the World

From Africa, India, Albania and Indonesia to Malawi, Honduras, Central Asia and Turkey, we believe we are all God’s children. That’s why PCLG is involved in helping others all over the globe.  

 

Since 2001, our PCLG youth, college students, and numerous adult advisors have built more than 30 homes in Mexico through Amor Ministries. As Christians we are all called to discover new ways to put our faith into action. Our goal at PCLG is to help you on your journey–and for us to do it together. In February, our high school group takes a team, and in June, this mission project is open to the whole PCLG church community. What a great way to put your faith into action.

Special Offerings

The church-wide Special Offerings of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are a collective witness to Jesus Christ’s love for the whole church. PCLG supports One Great Hour of SharingPeace & Global Witness Offering, and the Christmas Joy Offering.
