As the body of Christ, First Presbyterian Church’s mission
programs seek to reach out to the community and to the
world to care for those in need.
The Deacons’ Mission Connection facilitates the
congregation’s ability to witness to and carry out the
compassionate love of Christ by sharing time, talent, and
resources with people beyond the local community.
Mission Connection coordinates trips to Guatemala and
supports the host organization throughout the year.
Equally important are national mission trips which develop
long-term relationships with communities in the United
States, i.e. trips to hurricane-damaged Mississippi towns,
flood-devastated Iowa towns, and the Lakota Native
American Reservation in South Dakota. Visit the Re-
Member website to learn more about the Pine Ridge
Reservation in South Dakota.
Kids Against Hunger, April 24-27, International
Mission Opportunity for All to Support!
The seventh annual Kids Against Hunger drive will take
place from April 24-27 at First Pres. The Quad-Cities
chapter will again host “packaging sessions” during which
volunteers work on an assembly line (typically
12 people) to bag a special blend of rice, soy, dried
vegetables and vitamins for delivery to a coordinating
organization in a foreign country. Each bag, when cooked
with boiling water, will provide six servings to a
family in need. For more information, please contact
Deacon Craig Foster.
