Backpack Ministry at Lindley Elementary

Since 2011 Starmount Presbyterian has joined with Lindley Park Baptist to fill backpacks of food for children at Lindley Elementary School. As a Title One school, many Lindley Students are on free and reduced lunch and miss meals over the weekend due to lack of resources. We agree with the administration that this shouldn’t happen!

Vienna sausages

beanie weenies

Fruit cups

Vegetable cups

ramen noodles

mac and cheese

bags of rice

Starmount Presbyterian Habitat for Humanity Houses

Starmount is actively involved with the Greensboro Habitat for Humanity chapter.  Annually for the past 17 years, Starmount has partnered with Greensboro Habitat for Humanity and other Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations to build a house or renovate a townhome.

Work teams from Starmount include both skilled and unskilled laborers and are called into service for approximately 3 months every year.

Congo Pig and Farm Project

For over a decade Starmount, with the support of Salem Presbytery’s International Hunger committee and Congolese Presbyterian Church, have developed chicken and crop farms in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The farm projects began with an idea from Congolese Presbyterian and Veterinarian, Dr. Jean Paul Beya. Dr. Methy N’day has also added her skills to help develop the chicken/egg farms. The farms are located in Kananga, Tubuluku and Tshikiji, where these sustainable ministries help to provide much needed high quality food as well as economic development within the local economy. They have helped to bring the justice of Jesus for the poor to the people of Congo.
