Local Missions

First Presbyterian is committed to serving those in and around our community. Our congregation members participate in over fifteen local mission organizations, volunteering their time, talents and money to help those in need. Links to the parent website of each organization can be found below, along with a brief description of the organization’s main function. FPC also has mission advocates that act as the main communication between the organization and our church.
