Mountain View Presbyterian Church is a mission minded congregation.
Our Mission Committee is charged with disbursing congregational monies
in support of mission opportunities locally, nationally and internationally.
It also coordinates the direct participation of members of the congregation
in support of those missions.
Locally, the church is very active with organizations such as Loveland Habitat for Humanity, House of Neighborly Services, Community Kitchen and Blessed Beginnings - our community ministry providing cribs and layettes to families in need. MVPC provides both financial support and volunteer labor to make the programs successes.
Nationally, MVPC works through the Presbyterian Church (USA) and non-denominational organizations to meet the requirements of those in need. For instance, MVPC furnishes both funds and labor to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). Congregation members have worked on the ground to clean up and rebuild the aftermaths of recent hurricanes and tornados.
Internationally, the largest, most vibrant mission is our direct relationship with churches and schools in the sub-Saharan African country of Malawi. The church has hosted visiting delegations for the Presbyterian congregation in Engalaweni. Each year, several MVPC members journey to Malawi to deliver much-needed aid, dedicate various projects, and work to advance other projects, to include schools and micro-businesses. Emma's Chicks, a ministry vision one of our youth, was established to help the Women's Guild in Malawi create and maintain a sustainable food source. In addition to the Malawi missions, MVPC supports the Marion Medical Mission, Compassion International and many other endeavors.
