Ministries

Welcoming All

We welcome all people regardless of age, race, ability, sexual orientation, marital status, social class, religious affiliation or none. We understand hospitality to be central to a life of faith. We aspire to practice the radical inclusion that is at the heart of Jesus’ life and teaching. We are committed to the movement to full inclusion and equality in church and society for all people including our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. We are also building bridges to those of different racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. We understand faith as trust in the power of Love rather than intellectual assent to beliefs. We welcome questions as precious tools of the human quest for meaning and doubt as essential to a healthy spiritual life.

Serving the World

There are many ways to reach out and touch the world with love. SPC participates in a variety of local, national and international efforts, providing presence, prayer and financial support. Local partnerships include the Good Shepherd Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers, Jefferson County Community Ministry (food pantry; emergency financial assistance), Martinsburg Union Rescue Mission and the Shenandoah Women’s Center. We have also cultivated relationships through mission trips and financial support with the Coalfield Development Corporation in Wayne County, WV and the VERBO church in Bluefield, Nicaragua, among others. Through the agencies of our national church (PCUSA) we reach all around the world with educational, medical and developmental ministries.
