This is a small representation of the numerous ministries First Presbyterian is involved in. We hope this overview will lead you to become interested in serving in one of these areas.

FPC’s Blessing Box
Turning into the Coastland Dr. side parking lot, you may notice FPC’s Blessing Box. Like the other Blessing Boxes around town, this is an outdoor cabinet stocked with non-perishable food items, basic toiletries, baby supplies, and anything else that might be considered a blessing to someone who finds themselves in need. Anyone may leave items in the box and anyone may take items they need.
The most needed Blessing Box items are:
Canned meats (tuna, salmon, ravioli)
macaroni + cheese
canned fruits in light syrup
low sodium soups
pasta + pasta sauce
low sodium mixed vegetables
rice + brown beans (1 lb bags)
peanut butter + jelly
shelf stable milk
