Opportunities & Trips

2022 Local Volunteer Opportunities

The church’s Local and Adult Missions Committees work together to offer a variety of mission service opportunities right here in our local community and even on the church’s own campus. These service opportunities provide an inspiring way to live out God’s call to serve others no matter our age — there is a need and an opportunity for all ages to serve. Contact missions@fpcnashville.org  for more information about any upcoming activities.

First Presbyterian Church is known to the Red Cross as a generous and reliable source of blood donations. With your support at our quarterly blood drives, we can continue to aid in their life-giving work, which is especially vital while blood donations have decreased locally.

Pack a meal for Rise Against Hunger

First Presbyterian Church has packed over 100,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger in the past few years, with recent events providing food relief for Haiti and Nicaragua. The RAH event on November 21, just before Thanksgiving, is the perfect time to volunteer. There are jobs for all ages, and families and groups of friends can work together. We are seeking 150 volunteers to pack 20,000 meals.
