Local Missions Support

Many of the community outreach programs in Lexington rely, not only on monetary donations from churches such as First Presbyterian and individual community members, but also on volunteers and community-wide involvement. Many of First Presbyterian's members give of their time and abilities to help these vital programs along.

First Presbyterian faithfully supports these community outreach programs and services:

Crisis Ministry of Davidson County
Davidson County Cancer Services, Inc.
Davidson Medical Ministries Clinic
Davidson Prison Ministry
Family Services of Davidson County, Inc.
Grace Episcopal Church
Hospice of Davidson County
Lexington Housing CDC
Meals on Wheels
Pastor’s Pantry
The Life Center

 
In addition to financially supporting the above agencies, our congregation has made special commitments as follows:

Crisis Ministry
1. We provide volunteers who will cook and deliver an evening meal to the homeless shelter on the third Wednesday night of every month throughout the year.

2. We provide volunteers who will spend a night at the homeless shelter on the third and fourth Wednesdays from September through May, arriving about 6:00 p.m. or soon after and departing the next morning at 7:00 a.m.

3. We ask all members of the congregation to bring peanut butter to a collection point at the church, with the goal of delivering 125 jars monthly for the Ministry to give to those in need. We also collect cans of green beans for the Pastor's Pantry Senior Food Bank.

Grace Episcopal Church
We will send at least four volunteers to serve the homeless a prepared lunch each Sunday during the months of March and August.
