The members of Faith Immanuel Church believe that we are called to minister to God’s children throughout the world. Our mission programs encompass a wide range of activities including funding for various local charities and the worldwide mission work of the Presbyterian Church USA, which provides disaster relief, development assistance, and missionary support throughout the world.  Faith Immanuel members also volunteer within our local community. 

As Christians, we follow Christ’s example of feeding the hungry and helping the needy. Faith Immanuel Church is one of the participating churches in the Downtown Daily Bread program that provides hot meals, as well as used clothing and other basic necessities for those in need in central Harrisburg.

Two groups of volunteers from Faith Immanuel have been helping to serve meals at the Downtown Daily Bread soup kitchen on designated Mondays and Tuesdays for many years.  

Five members of Faith Immanuel Presbyterian Church volunteer to deliver meals each week for Meals On Wheels, a program that provides well-balanced lunches and hot dinners to seniors who qualify because of physical, mental, or emotional disability, and those without a caregiver who is able to provide meals on a regular basis.

The local charities supported by Faith Immanuel Presbyterian Church include  Delta Community, Lend-A-Hand, Perry County Food Bank, and Thomas Holtzman Adopt-A-Family Food Bank.

Downtown Daily Bread

As Christians, we follow Christ’s example of feeding the hungry and helping the needy. Never has this been a more critical mission than in 2020 during the COVID pandemic.  Food insecurity has been one of the greatest challenges to face our community and nation.
