Local Outreach

Sharing Christ’s love with our neighbors
There are all sorts of ways individual members of Murray Presbyterian and the church as a whole are involved in meeting the needs of people in our community and sharing the message of Christ’s love.  Opportunities to get plugged into mission and outreach efforts are always available!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Deacons Ministries:  As the group responsible for the church’s ministry of “compassion, witness, and service” (Presbyterian Book of Order), the deacons oversee various forms of community outreach.  These include providing Thanksgiving meals to families (on a referral basis) and coordinating an “angel tree” gift drive during the Christmas season.   

SENCA Food Pantry:  Non-perishable food items are collected in a shopping cart near the entrance to our building and distributed to families in need through this community agency.

Open Hearts Kitchen (First United Methodist Church, Plattsmouth):  Murray Presbyterian supplies the servers one night a month for this ministry providing free meals for people who might be struggling to put food on their tables.

Kids Carnival (Murray Freedom Festival):  Murray Presbyterian is pleased to partner with the Murray Freedom Festival Committee in providing children’s activities during the community’s Fourth of July celebration.  Join us at Tyson Park on July 4!

“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. . . . Now that I’ve put you. . . on a light-stand–shine!  Keep open house; be generous with your lives.  By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God. . . “ (Matthew 5:14, 16 The Message)
