In Our World

The missional efforts of First Presbyterian Church extend beyond our immediate community by partnering with our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.

  • OFCB Ministries in Bayonnais, Haiti – Our partner, Outreach for Christ in Bayonnais (OFCB), serves a remote mountain valley working with a school, a medical clinic and the local church. Members and friends work with partners in the US to invest in educational sponsorships of children attending the school. Our Market for Mission (held every two years) raises funds to support our friends in Haiti as well. For more information, please contact the church office.
  • Congo Mission Network – Our Presbyterian Women established a scholarship program to fund two nursing students in the Congo in honor of Todd Hobbie, one of our former pastors.  Contact the church office for more information on how to contribute to the scholarship program.
  • Rise Against Hunger – Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger by 2030.  Once a year, our congregation gathers for an intergenerational meal packing event to create over 10,000 bags of food that are shipped around the world to the countries with greatest needs.  To date, we have packed over 30,000 meals!
