Missions of Flemington Presbyterian

 

We believe in putting our faith into action and showing Christ's love through our missions. Some of our missions are through the church and some are in partnership with other organizations. New ideas are always welcome – please contact our pastor, Nancy Asbury, at the church office or the Outreach Committee.
