“Faith in Action” is more than a saying at Faith Presbyterian. It’s a good description of the church’s focus on ministering to people inside and outside of the church—here in East Parker County and beyond.
To organize our many activities, Faith Presbyterian relies on volunteer teams and worship assistants. If you are looking for a place to get involved, this is a great place to start!
Following is a quick description of just some of the mission and community outreach events our church is involved in.
Center of Hope
As a Church of Hope, Faith Presbyterian contributes a designated percentage of its operating budget each year to the Center of Hope, East Parker County’s church-sponsored social service agency. In addition, our church members help this worthy cause by preparing and serving free community lunches.
Goodland Children’s Academy
Our church youth group has formed a special bond between our church and this children’s home in Oklahoma, a ministry of the Presbyterian Church (USA) since 1848. Each summer, our youth and adult volunteers spend several days at Goodland, performing various chores and upkeep duties, as well as getting to know the students/residents. In addition, Faith Presbyterian holds a “contribution Sunday” periodically to raise money for Goodland Academy.
Vacation Bible School
Where can kids have fun each summer while growing in their faith? At Faith Presbyterian’s annual Vacation Bible School. This annual event is open to children aged 4 through entering 5th grade.
Faith Presbyterians are very active in making East Parker County a special place for all who make this community their home. We are involved in community life through active involvement and support of many community organizations and events:
ChristmasTyme in Aledo
Faith Presbyterian actively participates in this annual community event.
Willow Park Parkfest
Faith Presbyterian sponsors a fun children’s activity booth each year at this community event.
Ride for Heroes
We provide volunteer support for this annual bicycle ride/race benefiting the first responders serving East Parker County who help keep it a safe place to live, work, and play.
East Parker County Library
Faith Presbyterians are very active in the life and support of our small but growing public library.
