MISSION

Local Mission
Our Father’s Kitchen is an ecumenical ministry that provides free meals to the community every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. First Presbyterian is responsible for the first Saturday of each month. We also support the Greene County Community Food Pantry with funds and donated food. In addition, we support several local agencies, including Greene County Christian Outreach, Circle of Love, and First Call Pregnancy Center. Our Local Mission Discretionary Fund is available to those who may need special housing or other assistance.

Worldwide Mission We partner with several mission programs beyond our immediate area, including LIVE2540 (a ministry addressing the needs of children and families in Liberia), and Thornwell, which provides housing for children and support for families in crisis. We also make annual donations to the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering, which offers assistance to communities impacted by natural or man-made disasters.
