First Pres has a huge heart for sharing the love of God in the world.

We are all uniquely created to participate in God’s work of redeeming and making all things new in our church, our community, and our world. We are invited to live as Jesus lived, loving and serving others in the here and now!

First Pres supports 29 partners—local and global organizations that work to bring healing to the world. By providing financial support, volunteer resources, and other means of assistance to these valued partners, we seek to respond to Christ’s call to be faithful disciples, sharing our gifts with those most in need.

Serve the Church Serve the Community Serve the World Working Groups

We invite you to read our mission outreach webpages to better understand our partners, to more clearly see their passionate devotion, and to explore how you might serve and participate with our chosen partner programs. Click here to learn more about our Mission Outreach legacy.

Of course, Christian service begins at home, and every year hundreds of First Pres members and friends devote time to serving the church, the local community, and the world at large. We invite you to explore the many areas where you can share your unique gifts, passions, and skills at First Pres and beyond.
