The mission of Savannah Presbytery is to engage, encourage, and equip its members and congregations as together we serve the church of Jesus Christ in southeast Georgia. This mission is fleshed out in multiple ways globally, nationally, and locally.
Each year, congregations cluster together to minister to the “least of these” in places like Costa Rica, Guatemala, Haiti, and Honduras. One such ministry, the annual Faith in Practice effort in Guatemala, brings together members of Skidaway Island Presbyterian Church and other congregations for a week of providing free medical and spiritual care to those in need.
Our yearbook stories in recent years have highlighted our Latina Iglesia ministry serving migrant workers in Swainsboro. This fellowship is now a 1001 worshiping community in its third year. We have continued also with our traveling mission, an annual youth mission trip that allows our young people to minister throughout southeast Georgia.
This past year, our annual summer camp took on a mission component. Through its feeding ministry and mentoring outreach with local elementary school students, First Presbyterian Church in Brunswick identified four children who had never been to camp. The session and presbytery provided scholarships so that these children could go for the first time. It was a blessing for the kids in our congregations to interact with these children during their first camp experience. Our prayer is that these four would experience the love of Christ through this ministry, and that we would learn from these four as they give back to us.
Savannah Presbytery is home to 41 congregations and one new worshiping community.

Let us pray
Holy Spirit, you bring us life both as we receive Christ’s love and as we give it to a world that needs it so desperately. May others see Jesus in us, and may we see God’s face in the faces of those we seek to serve! In the strong name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
