Reaching Out TO the World

  • Shoeboxes for Soldiers Four times a year we send care packages to friends and family who are currently on active duty with the military.
  • Visitation Committee The Visitation Committee is dedicated to showing compassion to church and community members who are sick, bereaved, or in distress by sending cards, delivering meals, and visiting.
  • Helping Hands In the event of hospitalization or surgery, or a birth or a death in the family, volunteer teams prepare and deliver meals as a way of demonstrating compassion and care.
  • Red Cross Blood Drive Four times a year, volunteers from First Presbyterian Church organize a blood drive with the American Red Cross. 
  • Berkeley Habitat for Humanity As an “Apostle Build” church, First Presbyterian Church is committed to supporting the work of Habitat for Humanity in Moncks Corner through financial contributions and work days.
  • Hands of Christ As a distribution site for this regional back-to-school program, we provide elementary-aged children in need with school clothes and supplies each fall. See http://handsofchrist.net for more information.
  • Food Pantry Maintaining a well-stocked pantry allows us to share food staples with our neighbors in need. Distribution is by referrals from Trident United Way.
  • Hope Repair On the second Saturday of each month, we partner with several other Berkeley County churches offering home repair in order to keep families safe, dry, and warm.
  • Ten Thousand Villages In December, First Presbyterian Church sponsors a week-long sale with Ten Thousand Villages, an international organization that provides an opportunity for third world artisans to sell their wares in a fair trade market.
  • Thornwell Home for Children Coming from a variety of difficult situations, the children residing at Thornwell crave support and encouragement, which we seek to provide through cards, gifts, and monetary donations to our “adopted” child.
  • Operation Christmas Child Each summer and fall we fill shoe boxes with small toys, books, and school supplies, sending the boxes as Christmas gifts for children in third world countries.
