Mission Partnerships, Programs, and Projects

Christ calls on us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Through our Mission and Community Outreach Council, Second Presbyterian offers members of our congregation many opportunities to personally connect Christ and community through hands-on mission projects locally and occasionally internationally to address needs in the area of hunger, homelessness, healthcare, unemployment, education, disaster relief and more.

Mission Fridays

2nd, 3rd, & 4th Fridays of the month, 11 AM – 1 PM, Drop-off outside at 4201 Charlcote Road

From the start of the pandemic, Second Church has collected peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and casseroles for Manna House  and non-perishable foods and personal items for the CARES Food pantry. Both organizations provided much needed food and services to homeless and low income Baltimoreans.

Second’s Mission Council thanks the many members of the congregation and friends and neighbors who have contributed thousands of sandwiches and casseroles for Manna House, as well as non-perishable foods for CARES.
