Knowing God, Loving One Another, Serving the World. Missions are an integral part of the Presbyterian Church in Sudbury. Our Global Missions train and equip ordinary people to go and do extraordinary things so that all might see, hear and experience God’s love in tangible ways. Additionally, PCIS impacts the world through work with our global partners who are meeting spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of people in poverty-stricken countries.

Our Partners

Little Children of the Philippines

The Little Children of the Philippines mission helps impoverished children through strong, caring Christian communities. The building blocks of this mission are the parent empowerment program, the basic health program, the sponsorship program, and the program for handicapped children. In the preschools, children receive nutritious snacks and vitamins to help with persistent malnutrition. They get access to basic health care, and they learn about Jesus. We encourage sponsorship of the Philippine children to help them through their school years. This was the 2008, 2015, and 2018 destination of the Youth Mission trip. In 2018, nineteen youth and adults traveled half-way around the world to see, first hand, the children and the program that our church support. LCP is located in Dumaguete, on the island of Negros Oriental in the Visayas region of the Philippines.

Operation Christmas Child Project of Samaritans Purse

Operation Christmas Child was started in the United Kingdom in 1990 by Dave and Jill Cooke. Three years after this beginning, the Wales-based shoebox gift project merged in a partnership with Samaritan’s Purse, allowing the Cookes to share 20 years of expertise in relief and aid work with the project, and expand the reach of the shoebox gifts to more than 28,000 children that year. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to over 146 million children in more than 100 countries.

Operation Christmas Child continues to be an international relief organization. Its mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with toys, hygiene items and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with Christian information. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the United States. 

Presbyterian Church (USA) Christmas Joy Offering

Each year during the Advent and Christmas season, we turn our eyes to Bethlehem and celebrate the wondrous gift of Jesus Christ, our Savior. By giving to the Christmas Joy Offering, we honor this gift by providing assistance to current and retired church workers in their time of need, and developing our future leaders at Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color.
