Saturday of Service

Home / Ministries / Missions / Saturday of Service

First Presbyterian Church is committed to serving the needs of our community. We do that as individuals, Small Groups and Church Wide efforts. 


Saturday, April 13 will be one of Church Wide efforts to make a difference


Mark 10:45

For event he Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many:

 

The following are opportunities to serve:


1.  Colorful Closets 

     314 S Jefferson St,

     10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

 Colorful Closets’ mission is to provide clothing/mini-wardrobes for children in need, right here in our community. 

Join your church family or bring your own family and help fold, hang, sort and organize donated clothing so mini-wardrobes can be assembled quickly and efficiently as needs arise.


2.  Heal the City 

     609 S. Carolina St.      

     9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

Heal the City seeks to provide for the medical needs of the uninsured while connecting them to the existing health community; and to share Christ’s love and hope with patients and volunteers alike. 

Find a friend, come alone or grab a group and help with the Garden, planting flowers, the cleaning and beautification of the surrounding grounds and property of Heal the City. 


3.  Serve Our School

     First Presbyterian Church

     1101 S. Harrison

     9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

Serve Our School is a partnership between FPC and Speiro Legacies. The goal is to support and encourage teachers by assembling and distributing gifts of appreciation. Get crafty, be colorful and stay cool in the comfort of our church. Gather your Circle, your Sunday school class, your family and friends and pitch in to create teacher appreciation gifts for the teachers of Opportunity School and San Jacinto Elementary. 


4.  Square Mile – San Jacinto Neighborhood

     9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

Square Mile was formed to bring holistic and innovative development projects to our most neglected neighborhoods through collaborative and empowerment based community partnerships.

Sometimes destruction must take place before construction; so lead your lunch Bible Study, follow your friends, or drag yourself down to help Square Mile tear down an old, dilapidated and condemned house in the San Jacinto area so a second urban farm can be created.


Please contact Anita Goodrum if you would like to volunteer for any of these opportunities.
