We wholeheartedly serve in the name of Jesus: We share the burdens of others in our midst and around the world.

“Spring of Hope” is one of APC’s main mission projects. Through a partnership with Promised Land Ministries and in cooperation with Cranbury Presbyterian Church, for more than 15 years APC has helped spearhead this vital mission to the children of San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala. The “Feeding Program” provides two meals a day to more than 200 children. The “Preschool Program” prepares the younger children for primary school. The “Clinic Program” provides free medical care to those who are in need of basic medical and dental care. Every summer, the APC mission team travels to San Lucas Toliman to help with construction projects, work on the school, and bring much-needed basic dental and medical supplies to the village. Every year, the team also brings with them several large bags of new shoes for the villagers.
At home, APC continues its support of the Guatemala mission with the “Sponsored Child Program.” Last year through this program, 102 children were sponsored by APC families whose donations provided public school tuition, a backpack filled with school supplies, shoes, and a gym outfit.

In December of 2007, our Pastor and his family boarded a plane and traveled to Malawi to spend a year living in Africa. In the summer of 2008, a team of seven members from APC traveled to Malawi to begin forming a partnership with a group of villages in Malawi. Out of these experiences was birthed Villages in Partnership, a mission involving dozens of people working in partnership with other churches, schools, businesses and community organizations to nurture enduring, life-changing relationships with our friends in Malawi. Together, we work hand-in-hand with one another to devise and implement long-term sustainable develop projects designed to empower our friends to be able to lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

We cannot make any promises but will do our best to provide some assistance to further the work that these missionaries are doing to be able to serve.
