In the World
Guilford Park is committed to sending our members out of the church and community walls to share the love of Christ in service to others. Our adults, senior highs, and middle schoolers participate in annual mission trips.
Youth Mission Trips
High School and Middle School youth groups from GPPC take annual trips to learn how important it is to serve other people and support worthwhile causes. New York City, Washington, D.C., and Charleston, S.C., are examples of destinations visited in the past. Contact Christian Educator Kim Row to find what trips are coming up.
Adult Mission Trips
Adult groups travel to serve others who need help and to enjoy the fellowship of being with other church members. Trips in the past have been to support needy people in urban and rural locations, and those living in areas damaged by hurricanes. We travel to Massanetta Springs Conference Center in Harrisonburg, VA each spring to help tidy up the grounds in preparation for the middle school conference that our youths attend. Mission Committee members can describe past trips and offer details on future plans.
Mexico Mission Trips
Guilford Park members often participate in mission trips to Chiapas in southern Mexico to help with construction and medical projects. Planning, logistics, and leadership are provided by experienced travelers from Salem Presbytery, which sponsors these trips. Neither construction experience nor Spanish skills are required. The GPPC Mission Committee may be able to provide financial support for members willing to help on Mexico Mission Trips. Contact any member of the GPPC Mission Committee, or click the link above to find out more.
