Mission Work Days
Throughout the year visit our mission partners for hands on work. Trips include working for Habitat for Humanity to paint, clean and perform other work as needed; visiting Mision Peniel in Immokalee to sort clothes, distribute food and organize the food pantry; spend the day at Grace Place to visit with the children and read, play games or help with the food pantry.
 

Mission Trips

Several times a year we gather on the church bus and visit our mission partners.  These trips not only include tours of the facilities, but educational information on how the facilities operate, what their direct needs are and how they help those in need.  

Feed the 5000 bags

Feed the 5000 

On the first Sunday of each month, following the service, we had out Publix grocery bags with a list of items requested for food pantries of agencies we support.  Helps Outreach, St. Matthew's House, Shelter for Abused Women and Children, Salvation Army, Grace Place and Youth Haven are the agencies that we have partnered with.

Items most often requested are:
    Baby food or formula
    kidney, pinto, or baked beans
    canned fruit
    canned tuna, chicken or meat
    canned milk
    canned vegetables
   
    pasta or rice
    pasta sauce
    macaroni and cheese

     fruit juice
    cereal or oatmeal
    peanut butter
    jam or jelly

Food may be dropped off at church on the second Sunday of the month or the church office Monday through Friday. Checks are welcome, should be payable to First Presbyterian Church with the memo marked "Feed the 5000" and placed in the collection plate during the service or mailed to the church office.
