Missions at First Presbyterian

First Presbyterian Church is commited to advancing the Gospel through words and deeds, addressing the needs of under-resourced individuals within our communities, region, nation, and world. Our commitment to serving a diverse cross-section of our community is reflected in our support of 40+ local ministries in areas such as housing, hunger alleviation, elder care, addiction issues, homelessness, youth development, and spiritual growth. FPC supports domestic and global service organizations, supporting missionaries in Kenya, Taiwan, and Mozambique, and international service projects in countries like Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica. Church members actively volunteer their time and talents to support partner organizations both domestically and internationally.

Local Opportunities

The church’s Local and Adult Missions Committees work together to offer a variety of mission service opportunities right here in our local community and even on the church’s own campus. These service opportunities provide an inspiring way to advance the Gospel in deed. There is a need and an opportunity for all ages to serve. Contact the Missions Ministry for more information about upcoming activities.

Habitat for Humanity Build

First Presbyterian Church partners annually with Habitat for Humanity to help a deserving family build a home. All skill levels are invited! Adults and youth over age 16 are able to serve (ages 16 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult).

Room In The Inn

Every year from November through March, First Presbyterian Church houses homeless men through Room in the Inn. There are a number of volunteer opportunities available: overnight hosts, van drivers, breakfast donors, lunch donors, and laundry volunteers.

Blood Drives

First Presbyterian Church is known to the Red Cross as a generous and reliable source of blood donations. With your support at our quarterly blood drives, we can continue to aid in their life-giving work, which is especially vital while blood donations have decreased locally.

Pack a Meal for Rise Against Hunger

Each year on the Monday before Thanksgiving, 200 FPC members and friends come together to pack over 20,000 meals for those needing essential nourishment at our annual Rise Against Hunger meal-packing event. Rise Against Hunger events provide a fun, educational way for groups to lend a hand to people facing hunger across the globe. Over the years, FPC Rise Against Hunger events have packed over 330,000 meals.
