Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As Christians, we give our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity and to help more people meet Jesus.
As a community, we take joy in the ways our faith is made stronger through giving and receiving together. There is a satisfaction that comes from following Jesus’ example of generosity toward those most in need, and it is a privilege to use our resources and time to continue telling God’s story and help bring measurable change in the world.

Do you have a heart for missions? Are you always looking for ways to help your community, locally and worldwide? Then you have come to the right place! Buford Presbyterian congregation is always looking for ways to help out. You will see the youth involved in collecting food for the food bank, helping neighbors in and outside the church with yard work and small projects around the house, and in packing meals for international programs such as Feed My Starving Children.
The ladies of the church use their time and talents through the Stitches For Missions group to sew clothing for children in Africa, crochet caps and blankets for preemies in and around Gwinnett County and make wheelchair bags for residents of local nursing homes. The men of the church help through lending a hand at work days around the church, visiting local nursing homes and building schools and water lines in Nicaragua. The congregation as a whole helps donate items to Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry, Angel Tree Ministry, Gwinnett Co Op, Wycliffe Bible Project, Thornwell Children’s home and many, many other organizations.
Stephen Ministers are people who are trained to listen, encourage, support, pray for and offer Christian fellowship to other people. Stephen Ministers are not ordained ministers and seminary graduates, but all of them at BPC have undergone a thorough, year-long training program that equips them to offer some of those things listed above. Whether the concern is physical or emotional or spiritual or even a simple practical concern, Stephen Ministers are there for those who need them.
Both men and women serve as Stephen Ministers, and it may be a ministry to which you are called. If you want to know more about the program or would like to discuss the possibility of your having a Stephen Minister assigned to you, please contact one of the pastors or the lay Stephen Leader, Barbara Praed through the church office.
Whatever your talent, however you would like to give back, Buford Presbyterian can use your help in God’s community.
