First Presbyterian Church is an active leader in community mission. We believe that the manifestation of Christ's teachings come through helping our neighbors. Here are just a few of the missions we support.
Hand to Heart Quilting
We 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 9:00 to 4:00. Quilters, wanna be quilters, seamstresses, and anyone seeking fellowship are welcome to come. The group focuses on making prayer place mats, prayer lap quilts and prayer quilts for cancer patients, the home bound and nursing home patients. Even if you can not sew, you are invited to come and watch or learn how to quilt
Samaritan Food Pantry
The Samaritan Food Pantry provides for the underserved residents of Pauls Valley and the surrounding area. The pantry was started by a FPC member and was housed in our basement. At first, it provided food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas. As the need grew at other times of the year, the need for the pantry grew. The pantry soon out grew the space in the basement. The Samaritan Food Pantry now has its own building and is supported by many churches and service groups of Pauls Valley.
