Outreach and Missions

First Presbyterian Church continues a long tradition of hands-on engagement in our community, offering many opportunities for people of all ages to carry Christ’s love to those in need.

Some of these include mentoring Beardsley School students, funding & building Habitat homes, aiding Church Community Services, sponsoring area High School Peacemakers, Walking Against Hunger for Church World Service, an annual multi-cause Gift Fair, and Emergency Assistance for needy residents.

Coordinated by our Serving Commission, these activities unfold from our mission statement:

“… the [F.P.C.] Serving Commission shall discern and foster activities and efforts that reach beyond our walls with our time, energy and resources - to assist and comfort our human family in need: locally, domestically, and internationally.”

Habitat Build Update

Braden McCormick reports that the often-delayed County-wide Faith Build  will begin in late September.

This planned two-story home will be for a Ukrainian emigre family of eleven - several of whose members are musically gifted. It’s not known how and where they have been enduring through the many delays, but they could surely testify volumes on the subject of patience and family cooperation!

We hope to host them in a Sunday worship soon. Note to all builders: this project is gender-inclusive - dust off your tools, and stay tuned for how and when FPC will be invited to participate.

 We happily note that our Foundation has directed a grant to this effort of $3,000.

More information will be forthcoming soon!
