Outreach Programs at Carrollton Presbyterian

Our church has a long history of supporting organizations and even starting projects that provide for the needs of our community, our nation, and throughout the world. The very roots of many significant organizations across a wide variety of needs and services can be found in the work of Carrollton Presbyterian Church and its members. We believe that outreach is part of the charge and challenge given to early believers by Christ.

Galatians 6:2 - Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Below you will find a list of the organizations supported by our church today. For some that means financial help; for some that means volunteers.  Where available, we have provided a link to their webpage or Facebook page for you to learn more about these organizations.
