38th annual boulder county crop hunger walk

In 2023, we will continue to fight against disease, disaster, displacement and other challenges that leave people hungry.  Join with us as we raise funds to help neighbors near and far get the meals they need for today and sustainable food security for tomorrow!

Join the CENTRALongmont team!   October 22nd, 2023 we are hosting the 38th Annual Boulder County CROP Hunger Walk to support Community Food Share of Boulder County, Church World Service and Bread for the World.  

We thank all the team members and supporters from last year! This year, we hope to do even better because we have seen how this work helps support families who are struggling with hunger. Many of us volunteer with Community Food Share who helps to provide more meals for the growing number of people in our county who need them using partner organizations like The Round Pantry. Plus, Church World Service also does terrific work in disaster assistance, developmental relief, refugee resettlement and hunger relief around the world!

Please walk, support a walker, or simply sponsor our team! Checks can be made out to CENTRALongmont with CROP Walk in the memo line.  Or donate on our team page by clicking on the button below.

Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. 

Ending hunger is possible in our lifetime. Help take us one step closer to ending hunger once and for all.
Thank you for your kindness!

peace and global witness offering

The Peace & Global Witness Offering encourages the church to cast off anxiety and fear, discord and division, and embrace our God's mission of reconciliation to those around the corner and around the world.  A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of conflict and injustice across the world. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this Offering to connect with the global witness of Christ's peace. Mid councils retain an additional 25% for ministries of peace and reconciliation. The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.  

The Mission Committee has chosen Right Relationship Boulder to receive the local portion of our donations.  Right Relationship Boulder are Indigenous and non-Native people working with individuals, local organizations and governments to support Indigenous Peoples’ connection to land, raise Indigenous voices and practice right relationships with the Native peoples who lived in the Boulder Valley historically and those who live here today. 

You can give to this special offering through the donation portal link below.  You may also write a check to CENTRALongmont with Peace Offering in the memo line.  Thank you.

boots for columbine

Our mission partner, Columbine Elementary School provides a high quality education for their students.  But there are other basic needs for which they would like to provide support.  One of those basic needs is snow boots for students with need. 

CENTRALongmont would like to help the school in their support of these families by purchasing snow boots for students identified by Columbine staff. 

If you would like to make a donation to help with the purchase of these boots, please click on the button below.  A check may also be written to Central Presbyterian Church noting “boots for Columbine” on the memo line. 


If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Jan Kukic or Linda Parker.  Thank you!

pentecost offering

Each year, we participate in 4 special offerings with our brothers and sisters in the PC(USA).  The 2nd offering of the year is the Pentecost Offering which is an investment into our greatest resource, our youth.    

A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children. 40% of the Pentecost offering is retained by individual congregations wanting to make an impact in the lives of young people within their own community.  

The mission committee has chosen Cal-Wood Education Center's Latino Family Camp to receive this portion of the offering.   During each of the 20 weekend programs, family members are fully immersed in nature - camping, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, summiting peaks, and building connections with others and confidence with accomplishment of each new outdoor activity. From scholarships to gear, Cal-Wood strives to break down barriers for participation. All activities are led in Spanish by professional Latinos, recruited from the same community that they serve. 

The remaining 60% is used to support children-at-risk, youth, and young adults through ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.  To learn more about this offering, please click the button below.  And thank you for your caring.

cleaning up our community and greenway

We love to join our community in helping keep Longmont beautiful.  We participate in Longmont's annual Green Up Clean up event to clean-up our streets, alleys, parks and our greenways along the St. Vrain.  Each and every one of us deserves to live in a community environment that is healthy, clean and beautiful, and we all have a role in achieving this goal.  Clearing trash and debris from our rivers benefits wildlife, promotes clean water, and beautifies our environment. 

one great hour of sharing

In a world of disaster, hunger, and oppression millions of people lack access to sustainable food sources, clean water, sanitation, education, and opportunity.


The three programs supported by One Great Hour of Sharing - Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People - all work in different ways to serve individuals and communities in need.  From initial disaster response to ongoing community development, their work fits together to provide people with safety, sustenance, and hope.  

Received during the season of Lent, each gift to One Great Hour of Sharing supports efforts to relieve hunger through the Presbyterian Hunger Program, promote development through the Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People, and assist in areas of disaster through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
