February Mission Emphasis – Blankets Plus

We filled M and M tubes with quarters to donate a blankets to someone who is cold!

Blankets cost $10 which is what each M and M tube holds.

There was a great response to this mission activity and First Presbyterian Church

was able to donate enough for 75 blankets!!!

Thank you for helpin us Blanket the World With Love!




Mission Focus - During the summer months, the mission committee

focused our giving on Village Hope Partnership.

We reached our goal of sponsorship of a village which costs approximately $3000.00.

The mission committee matched congregational donations of $700.00. 

Village Hope Partnership is committed to improving life for people in villages where key resources do not exist.

We thank you for your generous donations to this mission! 



First Presbyterian Church actively exists as the living body of Christ,

committed to growing in faithfulness to God,

serving the whole human family and

welcoming all people into God’s love.
