Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking for a way to get involved? Do you have a smile to share with others on Sunday morning?

Here at FPC, we have many ministry opportunities, for people of all ages and interests! Many of us are unable to participate on mission trips to faraway places for many reasons, but we can emulate Jesus by welcoming members and visitors right here at First Presbyterian Church each Sunday in various ways. We believe that God has given each of us gifts, so why not use yours to help further His Kingdom?

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”  1 Peter 4:10
