FPC Garland has been in relationship with Presbyterian churches in Guatemala since 1999. The focus of the relationship is accompanying each other in our Christian life.

As part of the Eastern Dallas County Cluster of Churches (PCUSA), we have made annual visits to el Presbiterio del Norte (Presbytery of the North) in the eastern area of Guatemala. During our visit, we may help build a house, paint a church, or provide a workshop on Christian Education or spirituality. We work together with Norte to plan the trips, which build our relationship with brothers and sisters in Christ. We work together with the people and churches of Norte to help support the education and work of pastors and lay workers. We also work with Norte to provide meals, vitamins, and anti-parasitic medications for undernourished children in their communities. Mothers are given basic health education, and the children receive Bible School education as well.
