Our Programs at Quaker Meadows
Just some of the activities our members support and/or participate in. We invite others to join in with us as we have fun while serving out our mission in Christ's name.

Bring Harvest Home – This is a local cooperative ministry with Table Rock Middle School to provide food to needy children and their families during Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter breaks.
Burke Hospice & Palliative Care (www.burkehospice.org) – Each month we collect and deliver to the local hospice facility various food items to provide snack and breakfast options for families who have a loved one receiving care.
We participate in the Guatemala Partnership, helping to provide financial support for education of children and youth in our sister church of Genezereth (La Sabana) and the Suchitepequez Presbytery of Guatemala. The Presbyterian Women of our congregation also provide some funds for the Microloan Project which provides opportunities for women to grow in self-esteem, hope, and freedom, and to help them develop sources of economic income for themselves and their families.
The Henry Harney Scholarship Fund is an educational fund which is used to subsidize the cost of a college education for local students. Recipients are not required to be members of our congregation but they must complete an application and are assessed by a committee each time they apply for the support.
Operation Christmas Child is an international ministry sponsored by www.samaritanspurse.org to ship a Christmas shoebox filled with a variety of health care items, school supplies and toys, for a boy or girl who is less fortunate. In each of the last three years, we have filled 50 boxes.
We have two women's circles. One meets on the second Monday morning of most months and the other meets on the fourth Monday of most months in the evening. The women of these circles participate in and provide support for many of the mission projects listed in this section and more.
We also regularly send financial support to: Black Mountain Home for Children, Youth and Families; Grandfather Home for Children; The Joy Gift Offering (providing critical financial assistance to qualified retired church workers and ethnic leadership development) and the One Great of Sharing Offering (providing financial support to those affected by natural disasters, food to the hungry, and helping to empower the poor and oppressed).
The children of our congregation visit our shut-ins and surrounding elder care facilities on a monthly basis for a time of worship, fellowship and fun. Through this ministry we hope: to help keep our shut-ins connected to this congregation, to provide opportunities for our children to learn about the challenges of aging and to help our children recognize their gifts for ministry and to grow in their compassion and care for others.
