Community Support

What is FPC doing to help our community in need?

As our community faces many challenges due to coronavirus, tornadoes, and unemployment, many are looking for ways that we can safely make a difference.

Ways to Serve

Sometimes you don’t know what you can do at a time like this so we will post various opportunities on this link where you may find an opportunity that fits your gifts. We will include not only FPC-directed projects, but also information and needs from our local mission partners. Prayers are always needed and greatly appreciated. Please continue to check back for FPC project updates and partners’ needs.

Think Inside the Box

Safe Haven

During the COVID-19 epidemic, for their safety, Safe Haven Family Shelter has had to house families in hotels instead of the Safe Haven facility on 3rd Avenue. In the past, members of First Presbyterian Church have volunteered to provide and serve dinner to Safe Haven shelter families. Since this is not a safe option at this time, and they still desperately need help, they have offered the option of doing a food box drive. They are also working to get their families placed in permanent housing, and, therefore, are also in need of housing boxes. Safe Haven is the only homeless shelter that keeps families together while helping them find housing and employment. If you would like to help support these families, THINK INSIDE THE BOX by putting together a box with your family, friends, and/or co-workers. You can also donate any subset of the items needed, and we can combine items to fill a box. If you are interested, call us at 615-298-9507 or e-mail We can arrange pick-up and delivery for you, or you can bring items to the church when we return to our Sunday services.
