Opportunities to Serve
Our mission in the Missions Ministry is to make and mature followers of Jesus Christ through a response to mission, what we believe to be an indispensable part of the church’s calling.
First Presbyterian Church is serving daily somewhere in our community with such partners as Parker Street Ministries, Lighthouse Ministries, Talbot House Ministries, Gospel Inc., Beth-El Farmworkers Ministry, Laundry Love, kidsPACK, and more. We partner or participate with ministries throughout the county. Hundreds of volunteers come together to feed the hungry, cheer the homebound, welcome the stranger, advocate for change, and minister to people in need just outside our doors.
First Presbyterian Church supports six missionaries across the world in Egypt, Iraq, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, and Taiwan. These include the Parkers in Lebanon, John McCall in Taiwan, the Bertrams in Kenya, and some whose names are best not shared. Please join us in praying for all of our missionaries.
We offer adult and youth mission trip opportunities annually within the USA and overseas. Adults have been primarily focused in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. For more than 30 years we have worked with the San Pablo Presbyterian Seminary building new churches in the Yucatan, Mexico. The youth alternate each year between national and overseas trips.
