Who we are & What we do
When the church functions well in a community, it becomes a place that counteracts the anxiety of the people, rooting them in the care of a God who will not let them go, who stays with them during the difficulties they face. That the body of Christ, as a place of refuge and help, is a bulwark against what troubles people.
Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.
Mission at Wayne Presbyterian Church performs outreach and service, education, and justice motivated advocacy opportunities for diversity, equity, and inclusion alongside religious and non-profit partners—called our mission partners. We have mission partners locally in suburban Philadelphia, in the City of Philadelphia—specifically The Common Place and other organizations in Southwest Philadelphia, and in other parts of the country and world. Besides providing monetary support, we have developed numerous and long-lasting relationships with our partners. Below you will find information about the partners we are currently supporting.
