Mission Opportunities

Serving With Abundant Compassion

Contact the church office for more information about mission opportunities.

Christmas Sharing Is Coming!
Mark your calendars and start gathering the most needed items: clothes, toys and coats. For more details go to Christmas Sharing. To volunteer sign-up in the Rotunda or online.

Meal Team Ministry
Would you be willing to offer meals to church families in need? We are looking for volunteer cooks to be on our Meal Team list. When the team hears about someone’s illness, surgery, new baby, etc., we offer them meals. As a volunteer cook, you’ll receive an e-mail with information about dates, dietary needs and addresses. If you are able to furnish a meal for that family, you simply respond to the email and sign up for a particular date. Almost a 100 meals have been provided to First Pres families so far this year. Email the church office to sign up.

Food Pantry
The People’s Resource Center and Interfaith Food Pantries are emptying out their summer stock. They are in need of canned goods, whole grains, shaving cream, disposable razors, feminine hygiene products, bar soap, toothpaste, shampoo, toilet paper, laundry and dish detergent and diapers, especially sizes 4, 5 & 6.

Roseland "Good News" Day Care Center
We will stop collecting items for Roseland “Good News” Day Care Center during November and December. Instead, we will be collecting new and gently used clothing and household goods for Christmas Sharing at our church. After our guests shop at Christmas Sharing, we are able to shop for Ms Pearl, her moms and their kids. Thank you!

Thanks to a generous $10,000 gift given by a member of our church, we created the Abundant Compassion Project. Our goal was to cultivate a harvest of compassion in our community. One thousand dollars was granted to ten compelling nominations. Grants were open to individuals, small groups, and ministry teams within the church. In keeping with our value of abundant compassion, the grants will fund a project entirely or be the seed for a much larger endeavor.An Abundant Compassion brochure has now been created to highlight the ten wonderful projects that are being funded. You are invited to look through it and rejoice at the abundant compassion at work in our church.
Abundant Compassion Brochure
"I have never been so impressed with a group of high school students after seeing them in action on their annual mission trip! They care about each other as much as they do those in need."
