Mission

Corinth Presbyterian Church supports local, national, and world-wide missions in a number of ways. Mission is not what we do, but rather who we are.

We have made recent financial contributions to these programs and agencies:

  • Allen Community Outreach
  • Samaritan Inn of McKinney, TX

  • We support our connectional church with an annual contribution to Grace Presbytery which in turn supports the Synod of the Sun and the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
  • We continue to give food and/or financial assistance to Allen Community Outreach each month.
  • Our congregation contributed to the Solar Cooking Project, One Great Hour of Sharing, and the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance in 2010 among others.
  • In 2009, the children of the congregation had a "noisy Offering" wich was contributed to the Wylie Community Care Center. We also contributed to One Great Hour of Sharing, the Solar Cooking Project, and the American Cancer Society.
  • In 2008, one person from Corinth joined a group from the East Dallas CLuster of Grace Presbytery on a mission trip to Perlington, LA, to continue the hurricane recovery work of the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Program and we sent 147 caps, scarves and gloves to a clothes closet in Philadelphia, PA to combat the bitter cold winter weather.
  • Congregation members individually contribute countless volunteer hours with local agencies such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Habitat for Humanity, Evergreen Ministries, Grace Presbytery and the Allen Philharmonic Orchestra.
  • Our congregation has funded the Arwood-Pegis Music Scholarship Fund for the 2012-2013 school year as well as the prior year. This fund aids students in the symphonic music program in the Plano school system.
  • We are always looking for new ways to contribute to the world around us.
