Making a difference in the world

Gathering in the church building for worship, Scouts, and R.O.A.R. dinners have been discontinued until the CDC and Western North Carolina Presbytery recommend gatherings resume.

The Neighbors in Need Crisis Organization and Food Pantry continues to be open every Tuesday between 1 and 3 outside the lower level of the Marshall Presbyterian Church, 165 South Main Street in downtown Marshall, directly across from the Marshall Town Hall.  Please, one person representing a household in line.  You must wear a face covering and stand six feet from interviewers and pantry volunteers.  Unfortunately, at this time, NIN and Marshall Presbyterian Church CANNOT take donations of clothing, furniture, or other household items.  Thanks for understanding.

Applications for financial help from the Madison Friendship Fund are due by July 31, 2020.   For more information, call (828) 649-2711 or visit www.madisonfriendshipfund.com

Marshall Presbyterian Church tithes their resources to outside missions and goes beyond the financial in their efforts to support local missions. Some of the ways are:
  • volunteer time with Neighbors in Need
  • Christmas gifts, a party, and pictures with Santa for children of local families in need, a gift basket for their fall festival auction, hosting meals and a weekend at Glory Ridge for Presbyterian Home for Children
  • hosting meals for Madison County High School or Mars Hill students
  • shipping gift boxes overseas through Samaritan's Purse
  • securing grants for Appalachian Health Care for Neighbors in Need
  • providing treats and photographs for trick-or-treaters during Marshall Safe Treat
  • Donations to Madison County Education Foundation, Glory Ridge, and other local ministries
Internationally and locally, Marshall Presbyterian Church is dedicated to the missions of the PCUSA, especially with Cathy Chang and Juan Lopez as they serve in Asia to address the issues of migration and human trafficking.

Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire), Nancy is the daughter of Presbyterian missionaries, David and Polly Miller, who served in Africa for 40 years. She has two degrees from North Carolina State University: a B.S. in animal science and a master's in international agricultural development and animal science. Before her marriage, she served as a livestock manager with the Peace Corps in Lesotho and worked as a ranch hand in Nebraska.

  • Find encouragement to mature spiritually as you to worship regularly, grow intentionally, and give of yourself generously through both stewardship and service,
  • Find a place where you can serve your community and our world.
Join the fun! Each year Marshall Presbyterians go to work to support the Madison County Arts Council and Neighbors in Need with a hearty concession during the Art on the Island. These past few years members have stayed up all night BBQing in a large wood stove made by one of the members. All foods are donated by church members so that all sales can go to missions. The Neighbors in Need Crisis Fund enable Neighbor in Need staff to serve a need beyond food and home heating. THANK YOU to all who come for BBQ and support Neighbors in Need.
