By participating in global missions, First Presbyterian Church strives to live out "faith alive!" Our congregation participates in scholarship programs, missions trips, and helps to provide meals for the food insecure. Read more about these important ministries below.
Blanket Sunday is February 20th!
Blanket Sunday is a ministry supported by Presbyterian Women that aims to provide assistance to those in the wake of disasters such as these. Plan to make a generous donation to this ministry on February 20. Checks should be made out to First Presbyterian Church with “Blanket” in the memo line.
As you snuggle under your own blanket on a cold winter night, think of those who might be going without.
In partnership with the Presbytery of Western North Carolina, we offer support and participate in various mission trips to Antigua, Guatemala, and to our sister church in Tiquiste, Guatemala. There, church members have been able to support scholarship students and strengthen relationships with our sister community.
The Nickel-A-Meal Hunger Offering is received the second Sunday of each month as an act of worship. Our gifts are administered by the Presbytery of Western North Carolina. The Nickel-A-Meal offering supports both international and regional hunger programs as a way to show compassion and do justice for those in need. This program provides an avenue for outreach and ministry that allows every member of presbytery to participate equally. Large or small, every gift can make a difference. Please remember to save your coins or green to help provide a meal for those in need.
Donations can be made online (select the Nickel-A-Meal fund) or by mailing a check to the church.
