Serve on a Church Committee
The Presbyterian Church (USA) governs using an appointed committee system. Committees are "staffed" by church members and staff liaisons to discuss, plan, and implement various areas of ministry and programming throughout the life of the church. Serving on a committee is fun and rewarding. Learn more here.
Mothers and children in need can visit Community Crossroads on the third Monday of each month for free formula and diapers. Donations of powdered formula (Similac Advance Stage 1 Formula) and all size of diapers are always welcome and needed to keep this ministry going. You can also make a check payable to Salt and Light Together, Inc. and mark it in the memo line for FAD. Volunteers are also needed to help distribute on FAD days.
Christmas Toy Store
This annual outreach event in December provides parents and guardians the opportunity to "shop" with dignity through a donation-provided store of new children's toys, clothing, and family games for a small fee per child. A summer toy drive provides members with the chance to stock the store, while many volunteers organize, set-up, and help guests shop on the day of the event. In 2016, 300+ children were served.
Carpenters on Call
As needed, carpenters and handy individuals of all skill levels help build ramps and modify homes for wheelchair-bound patients of Cook Children's hospital and others in the community.
Travel near and far to serve alongside other members from the First Presbyterian Church community. Future trips include Cuba and Haiti.
This annual Spring event, which has been hosted at FPC for several years, provides ways for the homeless to connect with social services and supportive help as they seek to move off the streets. Volunteers serve as greeters and guides.
Mission on the Move
Every Summer, the church offers the chance to travel to different sites in Fort Worth that are part of FPC's local mission initiatives. Activities are offered each morning and afternoon/evening. Perfect for all ages, but often geared toward elementary children.
Urban Gap Work Camps
The ministry of Urban Gaps hosts youth or college groups in the FPC gym for days or a week of service in the Fort Worth community. Participants volunteer in FPC ministries and also with local social service agencies who work with issues of homelessness, hunger, and with children. Learn more.
