How We Serve


Reaching out to our local community and beyond, we share God’s blessings and the message of God’s Grace.  Among the causes we support are:

Community Welcome House – The Community Welcome House is a home for women and children who are homeless due to domestic violence, poverty and other crisis situations.  The Community Welcome House seeks volunteers for a variety of projects including repairs to facilities and transportation.

Coweta Samaritan Clinic – Many members of our congregation were instrumental in the creation and ongoing work of the Coweta Samaritan Clinic. Our own Dr. Kay Crosby felt a calling and had the vision to create a medical home for uninsured and medically underserved adults in Coweta County. Both Dr. Harry Barrow and Tom Lukens serve on the Board of Directors. Our congregation also supports the clinic through volunteerism and financial assistance.

Magic Makers – For over 15 years, NPC’s Magic Makers have reached out to those in need.  Magic Makers identifies special needs each year and provides the NPC family the opportunity to share their blessings.  Over the years, Magic Makers has provided gifts for our homebound members, telephone and commissary cards for military personnel serving overseas, gifts for children at Christmas, food baskets for families at Thanksgiving, school supplies for area children, hurricane relief in Merida, Mexico, power and medical bill assistance for families and a lunch and tour of Newnan for international students during Christmas holidays.

Merida Mission Trip – Our congregation likes to pull a group together annually to send on a mission trip to Merida, Mexico. Many needs have been met through these groups such as medical and dental day clinics, vacation bible school, and actual hands on building projects such as church building.

New Leaf Community Garden The New Leaf Community Garden is located on the corner of Perry Street and Salbide Street just behind the Church Preschool.  The New Leaf Community Garden is an ecumenical, community garden with opportunities for fresh air, exercise, great veggies, and fellowship with other gardeners and community members. We support the garden both financially and physically through general work days along with maintaining our own rented plot.. In order to provide fresh vegetables to those in need, the "fruits of our labor" are given to local charitable community organizations such as Bridging the Gap and Coweta County Food Pantry. This project is part of the outreach ministry for the NPC's Presbyterian Women.

Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity – Newnan Presbyterian Church has been involved with Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity since the affiliate was founded in 1993.  Members of the Church were involved in the creation of the affiliate and various members have served on the Board of Directors.  The Church supports this mission financially through funding from the Outreach Ministry, Second Sunday Mission offerings, and donations from individuals.  In addition to working as on-site volunteers, several Church members are involved with the Neighbor to Neighbor program, serving as training facilitators or mentors for Habitat families.

One Roof Ecumenical Alliance Outreach and Coweta Community Food Pantry – Supported by various local churches from different denominations, as well as community organizations and businesses. We support this mission both financially and physically with volunteers, as well as monthly can collections. Volunteers work for about two hours per day of service.  For more information, contact Dorothy McLean.

We provide both financial assistance and sometimes sandwiches.
 

Stop Hunger Now – Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger for more than 15 years. Stop Hunger Now created its meal packaging program in 2005. The program perfected an assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets. Each meal costs only 29 cents.

Supervised Ministry – Each year, we support a seminary student as a summer intern. The church offers local needs while the J. W. Johnson Endowment fund offers a scholarship. This is an opportunity for us to be a teaching congregation.
