    Following God’s vision for our church, the Mission and Outreach ministry of First Presbyterian Church seeks to reach people around the corner and around the world with God’s offer of love and grace in Jesus Christ. In partnership with mission organizations, and those on the mission field, we share in the work of building churches, training leaders, and meeting the spiritual, social, and physical needs of the poor and marginalized — the least, the last, and the lost. Our support, through prayer, financial gifts and service opportunities, extends out to many local, national and international mission partners.

    Compassion Weekend

    March 11 & 12, 2017
    Are you ready to sponsor a child through Compassion? Compassion is more than sponsoring a child...it's about releasing entire families from poverty in Jesus' name! In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults.

    Packets for sponsorship will available after services on Saturday and Sunday. Please pray about sponsoring a child.

    Mission Prayer

    “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you…” 2 Thessalonians 3:1 (NKJV)

    Join with us as we continually find opportunities to lift our missionaries and mission organizations before the Lord in prayer. Through weekly announcements in First Things First, articles in the Epistle, and a weekly prayer time for Missions, we believe strongly in the power of prayer to protect, strengthen and empower those that are the hands and feet of Jesus.

    Mission Trips

    Because of a partnership with Compassion International and International Justice Mission in the Dominican Republic (DR), First Church facilitates mission trips to the DR on a regular basis to visit these organizations and to provide the opportunity to visit sponsored Compassion children in the DR. In addition, other mission trips are available to visit partner organizations and missionaries when opportunities arise.

    Our next trip to the Dominican Republic is scheduled for March 22-27,2017.
