opportunities to serve our community

We highlight several ways in which we engage with our community in the passages below. 
To see a list of all the wonderful organizations we work with missionally,  

please see our full Mission Partner page or access our 2024 Mission Book.

Our monthly Mission and Earth Care Newsletter is also a great way to stay current on missional and earth care opportunities with CENTRALongmont.  To see the most recent issue or to review past issues of our newsletter, please enjoy the Mission and Earth Care News archive. 

fighting poverty, working to end hunger

CENTRALongmont sponsors a yearly food drive for The Round Pantry @ Westview.  The food drive is held during the month of February.  The Round Pantry @ Westview, a food bank for anyone needing food assistance, is open 2-6 pm the 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month.  They are located at 1500 Hover Street, Longmont.  It is easy to find CENTRALongmont friends helping at The Round Pantry.  To volunteer, please click here to access their volunteer sign-up.

We also have many dedicated individuals who organize a Crop Walk team each fall.  The Boulder County CROP Hunger Walk takes place every October as a part of a nationwide effort to raise funds to help alleviate hunger and poverty here in the United States and internationally.  The walk has been raising funds since 1985 and works to support the grassroots, hunger-fighting development efforts of Church World Service (CWS) around the world. This walk also helps to fund hunger-fighting programs such as Community Food Share serving Boulder and Broomfield counties as well as Bread for the World.  

working to restore god's creation

According to the Earth Care Pledge, "God calls us to be careful, humble stewards of this earth, and to protect and restore it for its own sake, and for the future use and enjoyment of the human family."  

We strive to live this Earth Care pledge with our education and commitments to lowering our carbon footprint and with outreach to help restore God's damaged world.  To learn more, please see the Earth Care CENTRAL page.

supporting childhood education

Columbine Elementary is CENTRALongmont’s neighborhood school. We partner with Columbine to provide support through reading mentors with the Read and Swing circle, and volunteers for special events such as career day.  The caring staff at Columbine also identify students each year that need either a new pair of shoes or winter snow boots.  Our Shoes for Columbine program purchases these items, plus socks, for these wonderful kids.  We also provide Columbine with funds to gift a new book to every child before they leave for winter break each year.  Get involved with these wonderful outreach opportunities!

We also highly value our relationship with our mission partner, Crossroads School.  Crossroad's mission is to assist middle and high school students who have experienced academic and/or behavioral struggles in traditional schools to reach their potential through an individually distinctive, learner-appropriate program.  Join other CENTRALongmont members and volunteer with these kids today.

Contact Jennifer Haratsaris for more information about both our childhood education mission partners.

Shalom...we work for wholeness, peace, and justice for all people

CENTRALongmont Presbyterian Church places orders for coffee from Café Justo every month.   Cafe Justo is a grower owned Coffee Cooperative based in sourthern Chiapas , Mexico, formed to address poverty and migration from Mexico to the U.S.A.        


The Benefits of Buying Café Justo

  • The coffee is organically grown, is delicious, and a good value
  • ALL revenues go to the grower’s Cooperative in Chiapas
  • It allows the coffee farmers to remain in their homeland. 
  • The Café Justo drinker helps support development of new spin-off jobs and economic development south of the border.   
  • By allowing co-op members to stay home and earn a "just wage," Café Justo addresses the double tragedies of families split apart by migration to the United States and of migrants dying in the desert trying to get here. 

Order Here

Orders must be received by the first Sunday of each month.  Cost:


One Pound Regular Coffee $11/lb.

One Pound Decaf or Mix $12/lb.

Recovery Cafe is a community of refuge and healing for people in recovery.  RCL supports adults as they rebuild their lives and break the cycle of addiction, or overcome a recent stress or trauma.  They strive  to stand in the gap between crisis and stability, by fostering community-building and life-empowerment.  

And we are so blessed to have them as tenants in our building.  Many at CENTRALongmont donate home-cooked meals for their daily communal lunches or work with their members.  

Interested in helping too?  Contact RCL.


To learn about more opportunities to serve with CENTRALongmont, check out the 2024 Mission Booklet. The organizations and mission partners we support were chosen based on our Purpose and Core Values which were adopted by Session in March 2016 and our commitment to being an Earth Care congregation. This booklet will not only give you an overview of our mission support, but also provide ideas for getting involved.
