Serving Our Community

As followers of Christ, we want to show His love for the suffering, the poor, and those who are being treated unjustly. Some of us help by giving donations to organizations that help others. Some of us help by taking an active role in making a difference in our local communities. It could be volunteering a few hours during a weekend, or serving more regularly.

Providence seeks to live out the words of Jesus. Where the gospel is preached, believed, and lived, the very life of Jesus continues to give life to others – food, water, clothing, shelter, medicine and freedom. It is with joy that we open our hands and hearts to our community, as if to Christ Himself.

You Can Save a Life

Ordinary people can give the extraordinary gift of life – to up to three people. All it takes is about an hour of your time to donate blood. Fairfax Lions Club has been in partnership with Providence Presbyterian Church for many years holding blood drives two to three times a year. This community outreach has provided American Red Cross with several thousand units of blood over the years.  Contact Us to request more information.

  • In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive."

    Acts 20:35
  • "Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?" And the king will answer them, "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family,* you did it to me."

    Matthew 25:40
