Pop Up and Emerging Needs
Current, short-term opportunities to help First Presbyterian with outreach include:
Spring Cleaning for Exodus
The Outreach Committee is thrilled to report that the congregation donated $695 to the Spring Cleaning drive for Exodus Refugee International.
Thank you for your generosity!
If you did not have a chance to support this drive, MCUM is currently holding a Spring Into Action drive for hygiene and cleaning supplies. A check to the church with “MCUM drive” on the subject line will be greatly appreciated.
Pop Up Volunteer Opportunity from the outreach committee
The Boys and Girls club, one of FPC's great community partners, is in need of volunteers to help get their Camp Rock facility ready for all the summer campers. They are looking for volunteers for Saturday April 24th for a variety of activities both indoors and outdoors.
If you are interested please visit https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a49aba628a5f49-dayofservice for all the available spots.
Hope to see you there!!
Looking for a way to help our community?
The Outreach Committee needs volunteers to work the Saturday morning breakfasts at Shalom. This would be a 1 1/2 - 2 hour shift once a month.
Shalom is careful to protect everyone who enters the building by requiring masks and social distancing. If interested in this rewarding opportunity,
please email Ann Gilbert at or call her
Sack Meals for Wheeler Mission Guests
Several in the congregation have commented that they miss the opportunities to work together for a good cause that were provided by the Saturday morning breakfast groups and the Interfaith Winter Shelter. The Outreach Committee has received a request for assistance from the Wheeler Mission Center for Men that could provide a chance to rebuild some of the focused team efforts that we have had in the past.
We are seeking 12 families or individuals in the congregation who will volunteer to purchase supplies and prepare 10 sack lunches once a month, starting in mid-May. Items in the sack meals could include a sandwich (PB+J, Lunch meat, etc.), apple or orange, chips or cookies, granola bar, fruit snack or candy, and a drink (water or Gatorade).
The Outreach Committee will coordinate collecting all 120 sack meals and delivering them to Wheeler. Later, when social distancing procedures change, we may decide that doing this as a group at the church might be preferable.
Please let us know if you are interested in this, or have questions, please contact Dan Watts,
