Since the founding of the church, Gwynedd Square has been interested in missions. One of the early projects was providing financial support to missionaries for the development of water filtration systems for Indonesian villages. During the 1970s and ‘80s, the church sponsored Cambodian, Sudanese and Vietnamese refugees who desired asylum in the United States.
From the 1990’s to this day the church supports Habitat for Humanity in Norristown, PA, to identify and renovate abandoned houses for new owners. GSPC has also provided assistance to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Response Teams for natural disasters including Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, sending work groups to help with recovery projects.
Gwynedd square has long been concerned with the plight of Americans falsely accused of non-violent crimes. Starting with Friends of Justice, a non-profit organization that works to uphold due process for all Americans, today the church actively supports Hope Prison Ministries, an interdenominational ministry to the incarcerated and their families in Dallas, Frackville, Eaglesville, Graterford, Bucks County, and Coal Township, PA.
Another organization that GSPC assists is the Inter-Faith Hospitality Network, a program of the Keystone Opportunity Center in Souderton, PA. IFH provides support services, shelter and hospitality to homeless individuals and families in Montgomery and Bucks Counties.
During the Christmas holiday season, the church collects gifts from contributing members to give to children’s organizations for distribution to children who lack parents or homes, or with parents in prison.
GSPC is involved in outreach programs locally, nationally, and worldwide. These are just a few of the many organizations Gwynedd Square supports. The link below leads to a list of recent activities.
