2018 First Presbyterian Church Mission Calendar

Check with Mission Committee chairperson to confirm dates and times: Rita Brown, 856-768-3293.

This work is led by volunteers and many projects are collaborations with other organizations.

Adjustments may be made as needs arise throughout the year.  

    There are many mission opportunities at FPC.  This calendar has been prepared to assist our members in their planning.  The mission committee recognizes that not everyone can or will want to participate in every activity.  Also, there are other groups within the church doing mission work that is not reflected here.  We do hope that each of our members finds ways to live faithfully and engage in meaningful mission.  Please refer to the posted list of year round mission opportunities to find simple ways to help make a big difference at any age, economic status or skill level.
