Mt Vernon Presbyterian Church is blessed to be a strong, constant presence both in our own community and across the world in Zambia. The congregation played a vital role in the founding of the Community Assistance Center (CAC), Los Niños Primero, and Family Promise of North Fulton/DeKalb as well as the Garden Presbyterian School in Lusaka, Zambia. More recent endeavors include the Covid 19 Fund, providing more than $100,000 in support to our ministry partners to help meet the added challenges of the pandemic.
Congregants participate in Monthly “Shopping for Outreach” Communion Offerings providing items needed by organizations in our community, as well as our Holiday Giving Tree and “Stuff the Bus” for Thanksgiving Meals.
Seasonal Monetary Offerings go to organizations supported by the Presbyterian Church USA, and we seek to meet needs that arise locally and internationally. We have supported Afghan Refugees through Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, the Student Food Pantry at Columbia Theological Seminary and Ukraine, Turkey and other Relief Efforts through the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA).
