First Presbyterian Church offers a variety of ways to put your faith into action. 1 Corinthians 12 describes a truth that we all can recognize:  people are different and we have different gifts.  We respond to God's faithfulness by using our gifts to build God's kingdom here on earth.
The Care House is a community based outreach center that is located adjacent to First Presbyterian.  Many local churches support the Care House financially and with donations.  The Care House is always in need of volunteers for various projects.  Please call 256 249-8289 for more information.

The Bridges after school program, organized by the Sylacauga Alliance for Family Enhancement (SAFE) has a new home at First Presbyterian.  Sixth through eighth graders from area schools can be found in Coker Hall every weekday after school.  The program provides students with opportunities for academic enrichment, youth development, and recreational activities.

Aluminum tabs from soda cans are collected by church members. It takes a while to fill up the big cannister, but when its ready, a member delivers the tabs to our local Civitan organization. The Civitans, in return, ensure delivery to the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham. The RMH is committed to enhancing the lives of children and their families, with a primary emphasis on facilitating access to pediatric health care for residents of Alabama and adjacent states.

Remember to save your tabs and bring them to church!

The Used Stamp Mission helps Christian publishers produce Spanish resources for Latino children.  

We participate in various Seasonal Ministries as well.

  • The Angel Tree

The Visitation Committee responds to the needs of members who are home-bound or confined to various medical facilities.  Volunteers share the ministry of presence and fellowship with these members--offering prayer, providing support, and sharing the love of Christ.

The Red Stuff Soup project is a relatively new ministry.  Genesis 25:29-30 shows Jacob cooking a stew. When his brother Esau smells it, he says, "Give me some of that red stuff, for I am famished."  Two types of volunteers are needed for this:  soup makers and soup takers.  When someone falls ill, or someone needs a meal, the store of soup will be used to meet their need.
