  • The Blessing Box

    The Blessing Box

    An outreach mission for        First Presbyterian Church

    The Blessing Box is inspired by the Parable of the Goats and the Sheep found in Matthew 25. It is another project of our very active Presbyterian Women. It is supported by another one of their projects, the sale of memorial bricks.

    The concept is simply “take what you need, leave what you can.” Think of it as a mini-Goodwill store that is open 24/7/ Items are left in the Box to be available to strangers. Items may include clothing, shoes, toys, games, puzzles, books, DVD’s, can goods, dog/cat food, bottled water, toilet articles, etc.

    The Blessing Box is located outside the garden fence on McCaulley St. Place items in the box

  • Columbarium Ministry

    Columbarium Ministry

    A ministry providing a consecrated space for the interment of a deceased’s cremated remains. The columbarium becomes a contemporary setting for the old-time church cemetery, reminding us that the church ministers to the spiritual needs of its members- from baptism, through life, to death.

    Photos of the project can be found on the Columbarium Ministry and Memorial Bricks photo page.

  • Presbyterian Women ~ Memorial Brick Project

    Presbyterian Women are raising funds for community.  This fundraising is actually two-fold. It is a Fundraiser/Memorial project.

    First, it enables Presbyterian Women to get involved in programs that “give back to the community” (scholarships, etc.).

    Secondly, it gives the donor an opportunity to remember a loved one by purchasing an engraved memorial brick to the placed in the Memorial Garden. Bricks can be given in honor of someone.

  • Wash Your Hands!

    Wash your hands and say your prayers because germs and Jesus are everywhere!

    Wash your hands for 20 seconds by saying the Lord’s Prayer or by singing or humming one verse of:

    Jesus Loves Me
    This Little Light of Mine
    I’ve Got Peace Like River
    Come, Thou Font of Every Blessing
    Down to the River to Prayer

  • Noisy Offering

    "Noisy Offering" is collected the last Sunday of the month separate from our regular offering.  The youth and children of the church go into the congregation with a can to collect loose change.  When they have collected all the change, they return to the front of the church and empty their cans into a large metal pan.  This makes a very loud and joyous noise!  Currently the Noisy Offering money is helping support  The Nolan County Ministerial Alliance.

  • Reverse Offering

    Collections for the Nolan County Food Pantry are collected through Reverse Offering. Items are provided from the collection plate on the first Sunday of each month. Put in your offering and take out a slip of paper with item needed. Bring your items the next Sunday and place in the grocery basket at the entrance of the church or there is basket in the hallway by the church offices. Food, personal hygiene, gently worn clothes and shoes, or cash donations are always appreciated anytime through out the month. The donations are greatly appreciated.
