FPC loves and serves its neighbors! We do this in many ways, and we invite others to join in.
Here are a few of the things we do in the name of Christ. You’re invited!
Ada Senior Care Center
FPC proudly hosts Ada Senior Care Center in its “First Fellowship Hall”, a wonderful Monday-Friday community service.
Boy Scouts of America Unit 4
We are the new Charter Organization for this long-time, active, and historic county scouting unit (scouts and cubs). It is a unit of the Arbuckle Area Council.
Our commissioned deacons are active in the community. Perhaps their biggest ministry is leading FPC in service with our adoptive school, Ada High School. “Adopt a School” is a newer program of Ada City Schools. At Ada High we provide a “Room for Students” (clothing, non-perishable food, school supplies, laundry), a Monday snack break, meals for Fellowship of Christian Athlete luncheons, and we pray the school prayer requests. We also support the annual Beautification Day.
Meals on Wheels
Every couple months we have a week of delivery duty, and FPC sends a team to serve. Meals on Wheels is a wonderful program hosted at Mercy Hospital and is absolutely vital in the community. Contact Kurt Jackson for more information.
We serve the meal every first Thursday at Abba’s Tables. Contact Cheryl Weems for more information.
Monthly–typically the second Tuesday of the month–FPC serves the meal at Compassion Outreach. Contact Kurt Jackson or Bob Neman for more information.
Ada Homeless Services
FPC supports Ada Homeless Services. It is one of the service organizations featured in this year’s Alternative Gift Market.
Women’s HOPE NA
We welcome any woman who suffers from the disease of addiction. We meet Tuesdays and Fridays at 7:30 p.m. in a classroom in Westminster Fellowship Center, the lower building on the campus of First Presbyterian Church. Our message of Hope is available to all. We Do Recover. If you have any questions call the church office to be in contact with a group representative, but really, just come, you are welcome.
Mama T’s Bread and Blessings
FPC supports Mama T’s Bread and Blessings. It is one of the service organizations featured in this year’s Alternative Gift Market.
Ada City Schools “Adopt a School”
FPC has long been the proud adoptive congregation of Ada High School. We care for the students, faculty and staff of this excellent school. We have built out the “Room for Students”, where students can find free clothing, backpacks, food, and even do a load of laundry.
Alternative Gift Market
It’s a yearly tradition at FPC! Held on a Sunday late in the year.
Urgent Community Needs Ministry
Due to generous congregational donors, FPC is able to provide some relief to families urgently in need in the community–especially homes where there are children or elderly. Community members contact us by phone, and come to the church office during office hours. Cash is not given to persons. But with appropriate identification and documentation we can sometimes help with a water or electrical shutoff, etc.
Sisters Hand in Hand
We are the new hosting facility for the monthly dinners of this important and beautiful community ministry for widows.
