First Pres is known in the community for its commitment to ministering to "the least of these." Here are some of the regular local mission projects we have taken on, and we'd be happy to have you join us in serving others! To sign up or get more info on any of these ministries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NELA Food Bank:
At 5:30 pm on the second Tuesday of every month, we meet at the food bank to pack boxes of groceries for local families in need. Our assembly line moves quickly and within a short time we can accomplish something that will make a big difference for a lot of people. Come serve with us any time!
Family Promise of Ouachita:
Family Promise ministers to homeless families with temporary housing, job search assistance, job skills, and the support they need to become independent. Our members serve on the board and our church hosts families several times per year. For a week at a time we give parents and children meals and a place to stay while they work to get back on their feet. You can get involved as a cook, overnight host, or even a coordinator!
Habitat for Humanity:
Affordable housing for low-income families is a major concern in our area. We are excited to work with an organization dedicated to meeting this need. Habitat builds are always ongoing, and we can connect you with a group to volunteer for a single Saturday or to make a longer-term commitment. Get in touch with the church office for more info!
