For almost 20 years, FPC has been the staging center for a special community service: Meals on Wheels, which is responsible for Monday through Friday delivery of meals to home-bound people. There are about 15 routes to cover; each route has about 8-10 deliveries to make and needs two people, one to drive and one to drop off the meal. That's 30 volunteers everyday for five days--150 people needed every week to keep this vital mission going. Volunteers come from community churches or are interested individuals; some business people even do this service on their lunch hour!

Right now Meals on Wheels needs more volunteers. Come on, you retired folks, people who are not working, and even people who work but could take their lunchtime once a month to perform this vital service. Who knows? We who are mobile today may need this service in the future. Be an angel and volunteer once a month, twice a month, or even once a week. Whatever you can do, you will find it rewarding.

We gather at the church at 11 am when the meals are delivered here by truck. We then take our particular route's meals, put them in our cars, and drive off to deliver them. Generally we finish our route between noon and 1 pm.

If you can help, please contact the church office.

THIS WEEK more-button-white

Children's and Youth Ministry

Take a few moments to check out a PHOTO SLIDESHOW of the Summer 2014 Youth and Middle School Mission Trip. Five middle and high school girls were ready for a mission adventure. The experience depended their faith, broadened their perspective as compared to their own lives, opened their hearts and the girls were inspired by volunteers that were committed to making a difference.

At First Church, we partner with families to guide and nurture children and youth, providing plenty of ways to encourage kids to know and follow Jesus Christ and be faithful members of his church. Learn how we approach spiritual development of children and youth at Children's Ministry and Youth Ministry.
