Through the PC(USA) we support missionaries and mission work throughout the world. We also work with our denomination to provide emergency relief for people who are suffering.
We believe that it is our responsibility as Christians to be God's presence in our community. As part of that responsibility we sponsor a number of very important community mission activities such as English as a Second Language classes, an emergency shelter for homeless men, and activities for older adults. We are an open and welcoming church that is defined by our service and care for our congregation and community.
Youth Mission trips
We believe God is leading us into mission work within our community and the world. The mission work at First Presbyterian does not just include the members who do the work on site, but it also comes from all of our members who support the program by cooking meals to take on the trip, prayer buddies, scholarships, and the participation in the various fund raising activities that the mission team creates. Every member of the church is involved in an important and special way.
Since the beginning of the Mission Trips in 1987, the number of people who do the mission work has doubled. Feeding the homeless, working with less fortunate children, and working with disaster rebuilding have been the goals of most of the previous trips. We have traveled to West Virginia, Washington D.C., New York, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Mississippi in following God's call to help our brothers and sisters in Christ.
If you would like to participate in or support any of our mission efforts, please contact the church office.
