Meals on Wheels

First Presbyterian Church is a local partner of Meals on Wheels of America, which operates in virtually every community in America through a network of more than 5,000 independently-run local programs. While the diversity of each program's services and operations may vary based on the needs and resources of their communities, they are all committed to supporting their senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their own homes.

Our church organization coordinates with St. Barnabas Church locally to train and organize volunteers to deliver prepared, hot lunches 5 days a week to those home bound community members in need.

FPC is a mission partner with Living Waters for the World for our sister church, Iglesia Presbiteriana-Reformada Resurrección de Sabanilla in Juan G. Gomez, Matanzas Province, Cuba.
Living Waters for the World trains, equips and supports volunteers in forming global, clean-water mission partnerships. These partnerships empower international communities to install and sustain water purification systems and health education programs.
In 2019, we worked alongside our fellow Presbiterianas to build a purification system to allow their church to distribute water for free to their small town; the only clean water source in more than ten miles in any direction.
