One Great Hour of Sharing
For over 70 years during the season of Lent, One Great Hour of Sharing has offered Presbyterians a
way to share God’s love with our neighbors in need around the world by providing relief to those
affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and helping to empower the poor and
oppressed. If you would like to make a gift to One Great Hour of Sharing, please make your check out
to First Presbyterian Church with OGHS in the memo line through April 12, or contribute

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

Abundant Compassion Project
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
