Mission Opportunities

Serving With Abundant Compassion

Contact the church office for more information about mission opportunities.

People’s Resource Center
Saturday, October 12 from 8:30 a.m. - noon
Lord, when did we see you hungry? We have an opportunity to serve our neighbors at the People’s Resource Center. If you would like to participate, please sign up at the information desk or in the church office.

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 are currently collecting formula and baby food as well as diapers and wipes for Ms Pearl. Bring your items to the Rotunda coat room marked Ms Pearl.

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.
