First Presbyterian

A community cornerstone in Christ since 1850.

"For I was hungry and you gave me food,

I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,

I was a stranger and you welcomed me,

I was naked and you gave me clothing,

I was sick and you took care of me,

I was in prison and you visited me."

Matthew 25:35-36 NRSV


​​The Family Life Center also serves as a donation collection site for FPC ministries,

including items needed for local food banks, school supplies, international discipleship missions,

and aging outreach ministries.

Every year, FPC Youth help share the Gospel with children around the globe with a simple gift - Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

In November, you can help FPC Youth fill shoeboxes for 350 children! 


Simply provide small items for shoeboxes that will be distributed internationally by Samaritan's Purse.

FPC's Family Life Center serves as a donation site for missions and ministries.  Our Youth Group is packing OCC shoeboxes for National Collection Week – once the date is set your offer to donate items needed for girls and boys ages 2-14 would be greatly appreciated.  Please consider dropping off any of the following items at the Fpc Carthage Family Life Center Donation Station: socks, underwear, shirts, washcloths, soap, crayons, coloring books, small toys, and small musical instruments, as well as plastic shoe box size containers.  Youth will volunteer at an OCC Processing Center in in November or December!
