Woodland Park Presbyterian Church has a reputation of caring for others and following up that caring with mission. Its people have an abiding interest in the world around them and the needs of the oppressed and distressed.

Justice

Amnesty International

Once a month we receive information from Amnesty International and write and e-mail letters to offending government officials to protest inhumane treatment of prisoners and others. Visit www.amnesty.org for more information about this organization’s work.

St. Charles Apartments

We partner with various local agencies who serve Seattle’s homeless population. As part of the partnership with Plymouth Housing Group, we serve a monthly brunch at the St. Charles Apartments and give gift bags at Christmas. The Emergency Feeding Program supplies us with food packs for the hungry who seek help at the church office.

Tierra Nueva

We support Tierra Nueva (New Earth), an ecumenical ministry located in Burlington, Washington that seeks to share the Good News of God's liberation in Jesus Christ with migrant farmworkers, new immigrants, and permanent Hispanic residents in Western Washington. For further information, visit Tierra Nueva at their site.

Stewardship

Earth Ministry

As a greening congregation, we use washable plates, utensils, and cups as often as possible, recycle and compost, and purchase Fair Trade coffee. And we partner with Earth Ministry, a non-profit organization committed to engaging the Christian community in environmental stewardship through education, individual and congregational lifestyle choices, and organizing for social change through environmental advocacy. Visit www.earthministry.org.

Oikocredit

We are a member of Oikocredit Northwest USA, in support of one of the oldest and strongest organizations fighting to reduce poverty by providing financial credit and services to poor people and communities. Visit www.oikocredit.org to learn more about microfinance and the marginalized people served by this international organization.

Reconciliation

Soup Kitchen

For over 25 years, aided by members of Northminster Presbyterian Church, we have served a hearty meal to hungry neighbors every Monday at 12 noon. This year we've served an average of 35 meals per week. The efficient volunteer staff of the soup kitchen, many of them senior citizens, feel blessed to participate in this worthy program. When school is not in session, the “regulars” are often joined by the youth of the church.

Samaritan Center of Puget Sound

"restoring hope . . . reconciling relationships . . . transforming lives"
Woodland Park hosts one of the Samaritan's 20 locations providing a counseling room in our building and contributing to their annual fund. Visit www.samaritanps.org to find out more about their high quality, faith-integrative, affordable counseling for individuals, couples, and families.

Community Outreach

Boy Scout Troop 125

Established in 1916, Troop 125 is one of Seattle's oldest Boy Scout Troops. They welcome young men between the ages of 11-18 to join the troop. Their meetings are held in the old social hall at the church (basement), typically every Monday during the school year, except holidays 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Greenwood-Phinney Chamber of Commerce

We are a member of this neighborhood association and welcome our neighbors as we participate in Artwalk and the annual Halloween Trick-or-Treat event.

Gamblers Anonymous

Meets every Tuesday in the church basement.
