First Presbyterian Church

We are a warm and inviting Christian community where all are welcome.  It is the purpose and desire of First Presbyterian Church of South Saint Paul to open our doors to anyone seeking love and acceptance.  Inspiring worship experiences and challenging learning opportunities encourage us to serve others as well as to laugh and play together.

The Christian faith is to be lived and not memorized.  We allow ourselves the freedom to ask difficult questions about God, about our world and about how we are to live our lives to the fullest.  Wherever you are along life’s journey, we will help you find encouragement and support, rest and refreshment, joy and laughter, inspiration and challenge.

 

All-Church Service Project
Sunday, October 21

It is time to roll up our sleeves and get to work! We will again be packing toiletry bags for 360 Communities,  a non-profit founded more than 45 years ago by a group of churches and volunteers. 360 Communities provides hope and support to about 18,000 individuals each year with 9 programs in over 40 locations, including a network of five food shelves, two domestic violence shelters, two resource centers and three programs that support school success from birth through high school graduation. About 1,300 volunteers donate their time, energy and talent in support of 360 Communities every year.  There are staff members in 32 schools in Dakota County who work with families in need, including South St. Paul Public Schools, School District 197 (West St. Paul/Mendota Heights), and Special District 97 (alternative school on Robert Street). The bags we put together will be given to those staff members to give to elementary, middle and high school students who need them.

On October 21 we will gather in the Sanctuary at our normal worship time. During the offering we will then move to Fellowship Hall where we will assemble the kit items in a bag, then conclude our worship service in Fellowship Hall.
