In the World
For us, the "world" is that area beyond the boundaries of our local Wilmington community. We regularly serve others in the world by praying, by sending mission teams to other cities, states and parts of the world, and by offering direct financial support. We're also in partnership with the Chuluchosema Presbyterian Church in Malawi, Africa, and we support an active missionary in China. Learn more below!

We have many opportunities to serve in the church, but the choices can be overwhelming. If you'd like to speak with someone about serving, schedule an appointment, or call the church office at (910) 762-9693.
Partnerships in Mission & Ministry
Chuluchosema Church, Malawi, Africa
Known as “The Warm Heart of Africa,” Malawi is the poorest country on our planet. Over a decade ago, a friendship between our former pastor Steve Hein and Pastor Silas Ncozana in Malawi resulted in our forming a partnership with the Central Christian African Presbyterian Church in a small village. Since then, several teams from SACPC have visited our sister congregation in Malawi and vice versa, digging wells to provide fresh water, feeding the hungry during times of drought, building a new sanctuary, a maternity clinic, a new secondary school, homes for teachers, forming friendships and learning about joy from people who have no electricity and very little other than their faith in God.
Our Session recently renewed this partnership. The centerpiece of this partnership is our Education Project. Many members of our church family have sponsored children’s education, and for the past five years, we have sent over 180 children to school, paying for a large portion of their school fees, supplies, uniforms and a daily meal. Some of “our” children are now in college. Many opportunities still exist to help this village church and its outreach to their Muslim neighbors. A portion of the annual One Great Hour of Sharing offering is designated for feeding hungry people in Malawi.
Another Malawi project that we and our Presbytery support is the Zomba Street Kids program. The monthly Five Cents a Meal offering goes to our Presbytery, which then returns a check from all participating churches for us to send to support homeless children attending the Zomba Primary School in Malawi. Each year, over 80 children receive uniforms, school supplies, and a daily meal—helping them get an education instead of having to beg for basics on the streets and giving them hope for their futures.
