Missions: Local & Global

Missions began with Jesus’ words and actions to meet the spiritual and physical needs of people around him. At Spring Hill Presbyterian Church we take this as the model for our efforts, and consider missions, both local and global, essential in what we do. Locally, through hands-on involvement, collections, and benevolent giving, we focus on feeding, mentoring, and sheltering programs which help to meet the basic needs of children and youth in our community who are adversely affected by poverty.

In particular, we
  • provide meals to families through the Backpack for Kids program at Mary B. Austin Elementary School, Phillips Preparatory Middle School, and in
  • partnership with St. Ignatius Catholic Church at E.R. Dickson Elementary School.
  • Mentor children at E.R. Dickson through the Big Brother / Big Sister program
  • Help children with their reading at Mary B. Austin
  • At the Presbyterian Home for Children in Talledega we help with donations of needed items, mission trips to work on their many different projects, and benevolent giving.
  • Other local projects we support are Wheel-a-Meal, the Service Center, the Red Cross blood drive, the Christmas wish list, and delivery of Easter Lilies and Christmas Poinsettias.

Through all these efforts we aim to be a church that feeds, mentors, and shelters children and acts in partnership with other organizations in our community to achieve maximum benefit.
