Local Mission


Every member at First Presbyterian Church is challenged to discover their personal mission.  In many quiet and unassuming ways, our members volunteer their time and talents for the church and for various non-profit organizations in the community,

The Outreach Committee facilitates efforts to serve the neighborhood and the area through its support of the Presbyterian Food Pantry, its outreach to students at Tank Elementary School, and hosting a neighborhood picnic every summer at the Cup O' Joy Christian coffeehouse,  In addition, the Committee has developed connections with the "Eat Well" program at the Mauthe Center at UWGB and with Freedom House.  There are plenty of opportunities to be involved!

The Food Pantry is open on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month from 10:00 a.m. to noon.  We currently serve about 125 persons each time the Pantry is open. Our neighbors who come, use the Howard Street entrance and receive their groceries in Banner Hall. We recently also began distributing meat.

Tank Elementary School


Tank School 2016Tank Elementary School is one of the most ethnically diverse and needy schools in the Green Bay public school district.  First Presbyterian has "adopted" this school and has a long history of interaction and support, that includes reading to students, providing school supplies, collecting hats and mittens, and putting together "Christmas Prayer Baskets" for the neediest of the familes.

 

 

Cup O' Joy Summer Picnic


2009_Cup_04_optEvery summer in late July First Presbyterian Church partners with Trinity Lutheran to host a Saturday picnic on the grounds of the Cup O' Joy Christian coffeehouse.  We disseminate flyers in the neighborhood, provide games and prizes for the children, and grill hamburgers and hotdogs.  Church members provide salads and desserts and volunteer as servers.  We will typically serve more than 200 neighbors at this event.
