“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, a stranger and you welcomed me.” –Mt. 25:35

Georgetown Presbyterian Church provides many ways to respond to God’s love through service to our neighbors, near and far. Just as God came to the world in love, we too are called to dedicate our lives to loving service through Christ’s body the church.

Please look at all our mission opportunities, located on the tab at the top of the page, or scroll down to see what’s coming next. There are also a variety of ways to serve and be served by those in our own church community through Member Care. Financial pledges and donations are also an important way of serving.

 

Upcoming Service Opportunities

Georgetown Saturday Suppers and Sunday Dinners

“GSS” and “GSD” are weekly collaborations with Georgetown churches that feed more than 50 unhoused Georgetowners every weekend. Our model is simple – each church has assigned days to provide and serve a meal. Volunteers sign up online to bring a portion of the meal and serve it. The time commitment is from 4 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. on the designated day. We serve the last Saturday of each month at Mt. Zion UMC, and the second Sunday here at GPC. This model only works because of the dedication of volunteers who are invested in caring for our unhoused neighbors.

Mentoring at Excel Public Charter School in Anacostia

Excel Academy opened in 2008 and currently serves girls K-7. Their hope is to complete enrollment for K-8 in a few years.
In order to partner with the local community, they’re beginning a program called Saturday Academy. This is envisioned as an opportunity for learning outside of the classroom, not strictly one-on-one mentoring. This is an opportunity to develop partnerships in the neighborhood and beyond with folks that can help their students succeed beyond their time at Excel. Examples of this kind of learning would be taking a field trip to a nearby park to see erosion in action, or a time of music-making with members of a choir.
