In Our Community
Local missions are a dynamic and vital part of the life of First Presbyterian Church. Among others, we support the Women’s Resource Center, Meals on Wheels, Salvation Army, Residential Treatment Services, Positive Attitude Youth Center, and Crossroads Sexual Assault Response and Resource Center. Opportunities to serve remain constant and ongoing. Click Service Opportunities for more information or to get involved, please contact Ron Shive.
Here are several other ministries and ways that you can get involved:
The Furniture Ministry Program collects slightly-used furniture and beds to deliver to families in Alamance County who are in need of beds and furnishings that we take for granted day to day. Volunteers meet in the FPC Parking Lot on the second Saturday of every month from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM to make deliveries. All are welcome to attend and assist in a delivery workday.

Allied Churches of Alamance County
Allied Churches feeds, clothes, and shelters the homeless and vulnerable residents in our community. Sunday school classes, youth, young adults, and Bible studies sign up on a monthly basis to prepare and serve dinner at ACAC.
This annual walk is a part of the hunger relief missions at First Presbyterian Church. Families and youth of all ages participate in a walk together to raise money that goes to local food banks.
Habitat for Humanity
Since 1990, First Presbyterian Church has built seven homes (six alone and our most recent one, number seven, with Graham and Bethany Presbyterian Churches). In addition, FPC has provided valuable support to this ministry—volunteers, hospitality and lodging for visiting groups, facilities use, and prayer support. Opportunities abound for members to get involved with Habitat.
