Community Outreach

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.

Calling All Volunteers and Artists!

If you haven’t already noticed the “drawing on the wall” outside A Child’s Garden preschool, we have officially begun creating the mural to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary. But in order to bring this vision to life, we need your help. Through the month of April, we are seeking volunteers from our ACG families and our FPC congregation and friends to come out and paint the mural with us. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a professional—we will have supervisors guiding our volunteers and have outlines and reference images for everyone’s use. Our goal is to work on the mural from 9:00am to 1:00pm on Saturdays:  April 9th, 23rd & 30th.

If you would like to help out, please contact Niccole at FPC at niccolepierre.williams@firstpresabq.org or Mary at ACG at marymatteucci@firstpresabq.org.
