A portion of your giving supports local and global missions 2018-10-17T10:52:54-04:00


We gather to worship, we scatter to serve.

Through the very generous giving of the First Presby congregation, the funds given to both the Sunday Plate Offerings and the Pledge offerings enable us to care for our neighbors both near and far. These funds are directed to:

Presbyterian Shared Mission Support

To support the general Presbyterian World Mission efforts enabling them to address the root causes of poverty, share the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ, and work for reconciliation in some of the world’s most troubled places.

First Presby Directed Mission Support

To support mission co-workers and outreach organizations as listed:

  • Rev. Douglas Dicks, Serving Israel & Palestine
  • Tracey King-Ortega, Serving Central America
  • Rev. Jed and Jennifer Koball, Serving Peru
  • Rev. Bob and Kristi Rice, Serving South Sudan
  • Westminster Foundation
  • West Virginia Mission and Advocacy Workshops
  • Firelight Foundation (Africa)
  • Hope For Children (Slovakia)

First Presbyterian Local Mission Grant Fund Recipients

All of the local and state agencies that have been named as Local Mission Grant Fund recipients have one big goal. That goal is to strive to meet the basic human needs of food, shelter, water, healthcare, and Christian nurture/education. As well as receiving funds, many of our congregation members serve on the boards and volunteers at many of these agencies and organizations.
