South Aiken Presbyterian Church engages in various local and global mission partnerships and projects. SAPC strives to be Christ to all whom we encounter. We seek to improve livelihood and well-being holistically through global outreach opportunities. Check out our global mission involvement below as we seek to "Open Doors to Christ".
The Honduras Agape Foundation began as an outreach international ministry mission of South Aiken Presbyterian Church to Quimistan, Honduras, in response to the devastation suffered from Hurricane Mitch in 1999. Over the years this mission effort has evolved into an ecumenical effort involving several churches. Up to five mission teams spend time each year in Quimistan manifesting the love of Jesus Christ by partnering with local community members in meeting the many needs of the area.
