What Does it Look Like?
Right on 6th street in the heart of the
San Jacinto neighborhood sits First Pres's newest service endeavor.
It is a hub of service for individuals, small groups, and the church as a whole.
Examples of Service Outside of the Church
Our Deacons helped a widow in need by weather-proofing and painting windows, pulling weeds, and tearing down and rebuilding a fence.
These First Pres members met in the San Jacinto neighborhood one Saturday morning for a trash clean up day. Several members also walked the neighborhood to pray for the people who live there.
This group went on a mission trip to Colorado Springs and served at Marion House.
A First Pres team went to Houston to help clean up and rebuild after a hurricane.
First Pres volunteers helped remodel the Downtown Women's Center Gratitude Apartments.
These sweet ladies are making teacher appreciation gifts for the teachers at San Jacinto elementary school.
Our Compassionate Chefs group makes and freezes meals that will be given to those in need due to sickness or other difficult situations.
This hardworking group traveled to Tulsa to help build a Habitat for Humanity house.
Examples of Service Inside of the Church
Our volunteers make a huge impact as they help lay a foundation of God's truth in Sunday school, Wednesday Night programming, VBS, and more. There are many ways to serve in Children's Ministry.
Our Tech Team is a growing ministry that helps with our live-streaming, projecting lyrics, running cameras, and our social media and Youtube presence.
Many of our members use their gifts to support ministry here. Everything from photography, to playing music, to cleaning and organizing, to horticulture and decorating is all used to help our building be operational and to allow ministry to happen here.
First Pres' Deacons bagged a little love for the whole church to share with individuals in Amarillo without shelter. 150 baggies filled with socks, chapstick, crackers, masks, and more were distributed.
