Mission is a very important part our church life at Christ Our Anchor. This is evidenced by the range of efforts, from local outreach to work in other states helping others recover from natural disasters. We provide financial support, donate food and materials, and volunteer our time and talents. For example, see our page about our recent or upcoming mission trips under the COA in the Community heading in the menu.
Christ Our Anchor Presbyterian Church is broadening its vision for mission. In listening to our surrounding community (of all ages), what we hear over and over again is that one of the great unmet needs is in the area of mental health and addiction. We think the church could be a great witness in these areas by getting more involved and supporting community opportunities also.
Here are some current opportunities:
HOPE For All
HOPE for All is a Christian ministry whose mission is to provide basic human necessities (i.e. furniture, housewares, clothing and personal items) to families and individuals without sufficient economic resources.

Located at 122 Roesler Rd., Glen Burnie, MD 21060, we are open Tues., Wed., and Thur. from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. We have a major yard sale every second Saturday of the month, rain or shine.
