Our Missions

The "Daily Bread" Food Pantry - we manage a food pantry at the church in Burlington.  The church members are gracious enough to keep our cabinets well stocked with non-perishable foods as well as some frozen foods and assorted toiletry items on occasion.  The food pantry is available to members of our community that are in need of assistance.  The hours of the "Food Pantry" are 1st and 3rd Thursdays We also provide food baskets for families during the holidays.

Equal Exchange has created Big Change since 1986. Our founders envisioned a food system that empowers farmers and consumers, supports small farmer co-ops, and uses sustainable farming methods. They started with fairly traded coffee from Nicaragua and didn't look back. Today, we continue to find new and powerful ways to build a better food system. We partner with co-operatives of farmers who provide high-quality organic coffees, teas, chocolates and snacks from farmers all over the world, including here in the United States.
We invite you to join us. Together we can create stronger local communities, a more just food system and a healthier planet.  The Presbyterian Church of Burlington has Equal Exchange products including coffee, tea and chocolates available in our Narthex.  We are starting our 10th year of supporting Equal Exchange.  To date our sales have exceeded $16,000.   http://www.equalexchange.coop/
 

In 1959, Johnsonburg Presbyterian Center was established to provide experiential Christian education in support of the Presbyterian Church in New Jersey. Johnsonburg today is a place where city kids meet country kids, where black and white discover common ground, where the rich and poor of means and spirit are valued equally, and where each is encouraged to take another vital step toward realizing oneness in Christ.  Bibles are provided for all children who need them.  We provide financial gifts for scholarships for kids in need as well as lots of prayers and support.   http://www.campjburg.org/

 

Caring Hearts Ministry - a ministry for children with HIV/AIDS and their families is supported financially and with volunteers.  Thanksgiving and Christmas see us providing food for dinners and gifts for the holidays.  In addition, Camp Bright Feathers is given supplies such as socks, underwear, drinking cups and more so that the children can enjoy a fun week of camp.
 

Partnership With Perico, Cuba is a ministry started in March, 2003.  This is a sister congregation with whom we are prayer partners and share spiritual resources.  Several trips have been made to visit this church in Cuba since starting this partnership.  A banner they made for us hangs in our sanctuary and our banner is in theirs.
