A very important part of our foundation is based on serving God, through helping others in our community, and around the world. We pride ourselves on being a church rich with kindness and generosity of spirit. Members of our church volunteer in diverse areas. This section highlights some of the missions and programs we are involved with.

Here at First Presbyterian, we believe that enriching our community is one of the greatest ways we can expand the kingdom of God. In 2021, our Missions Committee has partnered with TenderLove Community Center and Crossroads for Women - two organizations that specialize in empowering and assisting women to be successful people and entrepreneurs. See testimonies of these amazing programs below.
