FPC loves and serves its neighbors! We do this in many ways; we invite others to join in; and we encourage others to do the same.
Here are a few of the things we do in the name of Christ. You’re invited!
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, 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.
Ada Senior Care Center
FPC proudly hosts Ada Senior Care Center in its “First Fellowship Hall”, a wonderful Monday-Friday community service.
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.
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.
