Getting connected, feeling at home, discovering a cause worth living for, finding help when you need it most, being equipped to live life biblically and experiencing the adventure of faith together…this is what the mission work of Greenfield is all about.
Members and Friends of Greenfield Presbyterian work together to make a difference in so many ways and they have lots of fun doing it! Some of the missions we are supporting or have supported:
- Partnering with The Welcome Inn Day Shelter, Crossroads Soup Kitchen, South Oakland Shelter, Rebuilding Together Oakland County, Berkley/Royal Oak CROP Walk and Rise Against Hunger in activities to serve the community.
- Hosting speakers from Matrix Off the Streets, Howell Nature Center, Michigan State Police, and more.
- Providing funding and spiritual support for five missionaries in South Sudan.
- Facilitating the “Clean Sweep” program which helps elderly and disabled members with home care services.
- Coordinating the Food Pounding and Giving Tree programs to provide food, clothing and gifts to needy families at the holidays.
- Hosting the Christmas Mission Fair to support agencies such as Motown Soups, Fair Trade Coffee products, SERRV, Cass Community Social Services, and more.
- Christmas Eve tradition of giving the offering collected that day to a special charity each year.
Mission funds support Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. Mission, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, as well as local projects, such as Leaps and Bounds, Berkley-Huntington Woods Youth Assistance, Gleaners Food Bank, Forgotten Harvest, Mercy Education Project, NOAH Project, FernCare, Rebuilding Oakland Together, and the Tri-Community Coalition.
TEAM GPC & REBUILDING TOGETHER SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN PROJECT WORKDAY – SATURDAY, AUGUST 29th, 2020
Greenfield once again helped with the Rebuilding Together Southeast Michigan project, with one of our neighbors in Hazel Park. This is a family in need – single mom, special needs son and a home that needs our TLC!
Rebuilding Together is committed to helping those that are having some challenges with maintenance and upkeep for their houses. This is a great opportunity to help our nearby neighbors with some fixing-up, sprucing-up and improving the accessibility & safety around their home.
Thank you to everyone that came out to help! It was a great day!
Crossroads Soup Kitchen

The Mission Committee sponsored a drop off Food Drive for CROSSROADS Soup Kitchen which supports the community at large by providing emergency assistance, advocacy, food, and counseling to anyone in need. They have been closed due to the COVID19 but have slowly begun to reopen.
Greenfielders were generous as always and we collected 84 bags of food that were delivered to Crossroads on June 25.
