We have enjoyed relationships with international mission partners in eight countries in several regions of the world through direct relationships with ministries and through relationships with missionaries of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
White Memorial’s Haiti Ministry has been active for many years through mission trips, projects and support of mission partners. We currently support families and children through Haiti Outreach Ministry, Family Health Ministry and through our Presbyterian missionary, Mark Hare.
Middle East Peace and Justice
The Middle East Peace and Justice Committee spearheads an effort to understand people of different cultures and religious backgrounds, by fostering relationships at home and abroad.
The purpose of the Poland Ministry is to develop our relationship with the Evangelical School of Theology-Educational Center (EWST) in Wroclaw through Mission Study/Service trips to Poland, through showing hospitality to and learning from EWST when staff members visit each other.
White Memorial partners with our sister church, the Central Baptist Church in Smolensk, Russia. Our partnership includes mission trips by both churches where we participate in our shared ministries.
We join government refugee resettlement efforts to help those who have left their country due to warfare and persecution. The church members furnish apartments, provide transportation, and help with other daily activities as needed for the families to adjust to a new life.
Santuario Hispanic Fellowship
Traveling to other countries to serve is not something everyone can or wants to do. Fortunately, there is a way to reach out in our own community. Santuario Hispanic Fellowship, which meets at the former site of St. Barnabas Presbyterian Church at 1420 Carolina Pines Ave., is seeking to become a charted Presbyterian Church and need our help. This congregation consists of people from several Central American counties and is one of 1001 New Worshiping Communities which is an effort of PC (USA). They would welcome you to worship with them at 4:00 on Sunday afternoon and attend their fellowship time on Thursday evenings. They would also like help with budgeting, administration, education efforts and summer programming. They want to feel part of this presbytery, and this gives us a wonderful way to extend gracious hospitality. If you have questions or want to find out more contact Gloria Johnson.
