Linden Road Presbyterian Church supports community initiatives

Linden Road Presbyterian Church is celebrating its 200th year by partnering with other organizations to make an impact in the Mansfield community.

With the mission to love God and love others with no limits, it hosts Sunday morning worship gathering at 160 S. Linden Road, Mansfield. Many individuals bring their talents and share in various forms of music along with an impactful message to encourage attendees to live a life that has meaning.

This gathering varies week to week, but includes the musical talent of many led by Mrs. Shelia Holloway.

Lead Pastor Tom Roepke provides a weekly message that engages contemporary culture with helpful insights on living a life that is full and finding margin in our fast paced world.

Recently, the church has hosted and served at the Celebration Lunch for the Gold Star Families, Mansfield Police's Bike-A-Palooza, St. Luke's Saturday night Community Meals. 

It’s biggest outreach is providing kitchenware and pots and pans for more than 100 families through Love INC of Greater Mansfield. 

“Our shared stakeholders (members) acquire, clean, sort and inventory items that are then provided to neighbors qualified by Love INC,” Roepke said.

The church started in 1819 in the original Blockhouse near the intersection of Mulberry and third. In 1954, the church moved to its current location on Linden Road.

“Our best days are ahead as we continue to find leverage of presence to our neighbors and beyond by offering a place to connect and grow,” said Roepke.

The church is raising money for the Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous groups that use its space free of charge. The church has the goal of purchasing new tables, chairs and a coffee center.
