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.

Mission Connection Alternative
Gift Giving Opportunities
Are you avoiding adding to your family and friends’
accumulation of more stuff? Do shopping lists overwhelm
you? Then, learn more about our annual Alternative Gift
opportunities! Mission Connection will offer Alternative
Gift Tags this year at the Mission Connection table in
Fellowship Hall. Tags are “bought” as an alternative gift
for someone who might “have it all”. You may “buy” tags
for $10 a piece. The proceeds will be sent to support the
inspiring work of our mission partners. Part of the focus
is on Pastor Pilar of the ILUGUA mission in Guatemala.
FPC has contributed to irrigation equipment for villagers
who must grow food in dry seasons on steep terrain.
Pastor Pilar verified that there is still a need for water
tanks. The tank cost is
$300; an estimated
$500 would cover
transportation up the
mountain. Please help
partners by buying at
least one gift tag as part
of your Christmas
