Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking for a way to get involved?

Here at FPC, we have many ministry opportunities, for people of all ages and interests! We can emulate Jesus and Love One Another 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

Spiritual Gifts Survey

One of our first steps in REDEEMING THE CRISIS is to gather information. We are working to inventory our congregation to assess the skills, resources, relationships, connections and spiritual gifts we can bring to bear for the sake of our community. The Spiritual gift survey takes us to the step of personal investment, and will help us to learn how the Lord has designed and gifted each of us to show His mercy in this moment. You will be hearing a lot more about REDEEMING THE CRISIS. The Lord is summoning us to REACH OUT to our city, to REACH IN to one another and to REACH UP to the Lord Jesus Christ in prayer and worship.

Take the Spiritual Gifts Survey

If you have an idea about a ministry or service that we currently do not offer, but you would like to see at FPC, please contact the church at (210-226-0215) and we’ll get you in touch with the right person.
