Answering the Lord's Call

Ministry and Mission Outreach

Locally Based Mission

Our Board of Deacons oversees the support of a number of local help ministries, including Mercy Meals, the Rescue Mission, the Food Pantry, the Zone (an after school ministry for youth), etc. There are opportunities throughout the year to volunteer to help

International Mission

At FPC, we have 2 major international missions with which we are closely associated. We have a sister church in Malawi -- the Kaphuta Church, and we help support Norfolk Private Schools, Malawi, a school which prepares Malawi students for study in American universities.

We also have a close personal connection to a mission in the Philippines. Marlin and Rose Jones, members of this congregation, are serving as missionaries there. Their work is largely to help the folks there to become self-sufficient through a sewing ministry.

Activities for Youth

We offer Sunday School (9:00 AM before worship) and Youth Group (every other Sunday at 4:30 PM). On a regular basis, we offer confirmation classes for youth who are seeking full membership. During the summer, we work with 2 other churches to bring Vacation Bible School to our youth. This year, VBS starts on June 26 at 5:30 PM at Trinity Episcopal Church (see What's New below). Also, there is Church Camp at our presbytery's excellent facilities at Camp Calvin Crest near Fremont, NE.

Youth are commonly involved in worship as acolytes, lay worship leaders, and in special presentations (e.g., the Christmas program).
