No matter what your age, no matter what your interests and talents are, there is something for you to share at First Pres! We've got plenty of opportunities to reach out to the community, help in the church governance, or to contribute to worship, music and the life of the church.

Too busy? There are plenty of short term projects you can help with; from writing a friendly card to college students to buying a pair of mittens for the mitten tree.
Infirm? Help us call or write notes to shut-ins.
Can't get out? Help donate food or baked goods for the Community Lunch or our numerous receptions.
Bored kids? We've got plenty of activities and projects for youth.

In short, no matter where you are in your life, there's always room to take a moment to do God's work in the world. We can connect you with the resources and people to make it happen!
