The Mission and Outreach Committee at First Presbyterian Church of Haddonfield has historically supported a wide variety of local, national, and international causes to bring aid and comfort to those in need as we spread the good news of God’s everlasting love.
Beginning in July 2023, the monthly Deacons’ offering, which has always sponsored mission projects, will become the Mission offering. Donations will be coordinated by the Mission Committee with input from the congregation. If you would like to nominate an organization to support with hands-on service or a financial contribution, please complete this form or print this PDF version and return it to the Mission mailbox in the church office. Email Mission chair Caroline Yount at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
