This month our church will be highlighting two mission partners as our community’s children and teachers start a new school year!
ONGOING Service Opportunities:
Calling All Artists and Woodworkers: Kids Making It Needs Your Talent!
Do you love woodworking or are you an artist? Want to make a positive impact in a young person’s life? If you answered yes to both of these questions, please consider volunteering at Kids Making It, a longtime mission partner of First Presbyterian Church!
Woodworkers and artists of all experience levels are needed to guide youth through various projects as part of their After School Program.
Classes run from 4-6pm weekdays throughout the school year and 3-5pm during the summer. You can volunteer as often as you like; it is up to you! Click Here to sign-up!
Good Shepherd Center: Come Serve Your Neighbors!
The Good Shepherd Center offers hot meals and a plethora of other services to neighbors in need. Volunteer opportunities are available to prepare and serve meals.
Volunteers will prepare both a fruit and green salad, bread rolls, and desserts. Dinner is served at 5:30 pm, and volunteers should arrive between 3:30 and 3:45.
Because Good Shepherd works with a medically fragile population, the Board of Directors has decided to require all on-site volunteers to show proof of full vaccination against Covid-19.

Domestic Violence Shelter and Services:

Help Hub at the Harrelson Center: Greet, Advise, or Organize
Help Hub at the Harrelson Center works locally to provide help with safe and affordable housing, education, employment, health care, and family support for those in need.
Would you like to get involved? Help Hub volunteers are needed to serve as greeters or advisors, or to offer administrative support. Additional phone lines and social distancing measures are in place so that you can help to better serve our neighbors.
Click Here to fill out the volunteer interest form, and you will be contacted when positions become available.
Sign-up to be a Regular Volunteer at Good Shepherd!
The Good Shepherd Center is looking for folks who are interested in regularly scheduled volunteer opportunities. The center needs help within their Second Helpings and Soup Kitchen programs.
Click Here to see registration process and to fill out the volunteer registration form. You will be contacted to attend a short orientation meeting about available positions.
Good Shepherd feeds the hungry and offers temporary shelter to the unhoused in our community. They also provide other essential resources to shelter guests so that permanent housing solutions can be found.
Share Your Service!
FPC would love to hear about your service experience with one of the opportunities posted here so that we can share with the congregation. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief write-up and a picture or two if you wish to share your service experience. Thanks!
