DISASTER RELIEF FOR PUERTO RICO

Out of concern for the people of Puerto Rico dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Maria, we would like to suggest a link to World Vision for donations.

If you would like to contribute to their disaster relief go to:

What will life be like at First Pres when Cor Deo, our grade school,  moves to a new location?  What are we doing to make our campus more inviting as our neighborhood grows and changes?  These and other questions about improvements and use of our facility over the next couple of years will be the topic of our next Town Hall Meeting.  We hope that you can be there for this important conversation. We want to hear your thoughts and your questions.  

 



Pastor Eric to Speak in West Palm Beach

PASTOR ERIC TO SPEAK IN WEST PALM BEACH

Please pray for Pastor Jacobsen as he travels to West Palm Beach on Thursday to give a public lecture on “Walkability”.  
The lecture is sponsored by a number of civic groups in West Palm Beach.  An ECO church plant called Providencia http://providenciawpb.org/has been partnering with these groups to ‘seek the shalom’ of that area and is hoping to provide positive modeling of how the church can show love for their neighborhood.

 



Thanksgiving Food Baskets

THANKSGIVING FOOD BASKETS

Thanksgiving food baskets have been a ministry of this church for over fifty years. These “baskets” are actually large boxes filled with staples and fresh  produce and delivered to families in need throughout Pierce County.          

You can help by donating non-perishable food or making a cash donation for the purchase of turkeys and other fresh foods.  The need is great, and we’re thankful for God’s faithful provision for sending fifty or more boxes out each year.  If you know of a family in need, please talk to a deacon or contact the church office at 253-272-3286.   Thank you for supporting this ministry.
