Mission Trips

Mission trips allow us to live with and learn from our brothers and sisters in other parts of the country and around the world while sharing their struggles with hunger, poverty, natural disaster. We offer a helping hand, but most importantly, an open heart to all we meet. There are opportunities for everyone to be involved with mission trips at DPC, including participating in a trip, praying for trip participants and for those whom with they will be working, and helping to provide supplies and support for volunteers.

We travel to lend a helping hand!

Southwest Mission Trips

Family Work and Cultural Trip – Join us for the 2021 DPC Southwest Mission Work Trip from September 11 to 18 for a time of service and spiritual growth. Transportation will be provided from DPC to Philadelphia for the flight to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Once in New Mexico, transport will be by automobiles. The DPC Mission Committee will provide funds to help defray costs. Accommodations are at hotels in Gallup and Albuquerque, NM. The total cost is estimated to be between $850 and $1000 for single room and between $500 to $650 for double room occupancy. The work experience is at the Community Pantry in Gallup. DPC has generously supported the Pantry for 17 years.  If interested, please contact Erin Rizk at erinr@dtownpc.org as soon as possible!

Multi-Generational Jersey Shore Mission Trip

October 1 – 2, 2020

This past summer and fall, a group from DPC returned to the Jersey Shore to work with the St. Bernard’s Project to rebuild a home that was damaged in Hurricane Sandy. The family has been displaced since the massive storm eight years ago and is hoping they may finally be able to return home by this Christmas. St. Bernard’s Project is depending on DPC to help complete this home and we are almost at the finish line!

To sign up or for more information, contact Erin Rizk at erinr@dtownpc.org.
