The Mission & Peace Committee helps the congregation of Derry put its faith into action through leadership, resources, and service in the community and around the world. We are committed to practicing God’s justice and sharing God’s love by focusing on eight core mission values:


Elder Care: 

We partner with local and international mission partners to put our faith into action by caring for God’s children in these areas. Each month, we focus on one of these values or on one of the four denominational mission offerings. You are welcome to join us in serving these partners in mission.

U.S. and World Missions Supported by the Presbyterian Church U.S.A.

Derry Church supports the mission work and missionaries of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A.  We partner with Carlisle Presbytery to support a mission co-worker in Honduras, and we participate in the denomination’s four mission offerings each year. Learn more the mission offerings and the mission projects supported across the denomination by visiting the Presbyterian Mission Agency

When disasters strike around the world, we respond by working with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
