First Presbyterian Church serves its community and the world. We do this by reaching out a helping hand, providing financial assistance, leadership and volunteer time to people in need.

Athens Food Pantry >> provides an emergency three day supply of food for many households in Athens County facing a variety of crises. Food Line: 800-338-4484

Appalachian Peace and Justice Network >> empowers groups and individuals to work for peace and social justice through education, training, and coalition building among local and regional groups and institutions.

Church World Service >> As Presbyterians, we work through CWS to address challenges on national and global scales. Two of the specific CWS programs in which we have direct participation are Crop Walk (see video below) and Blankets+, "a special mission opportunity ... providing funds to help people in need around the world, including the U.S."

Good Works >> is a multifaceted Christian organization that gives shelter to the homeless, provides jobs for the poor, and empowers and inspires individuals in need, through love, faith and compassion.

Habitat for Humanity >> builds decent, affordable homes for people in need in Athens County.

My Sisters' Place >> provides emergency shelter and support services to victims of interpersonal abuse and their children.

One Great Hour of Sharing >> Since 1949, Presbyterians have joined with millions of other Christians through One Great Hour of Sharing to share God's love with people experiencing need. Our gifts support ministries of disaster response, refugee assistance and resettlement, and community development that help people find safe refuge, start new lives and work together to strengthen their families and communities. (See video below)

Planned Parenthood of SE Ohio> >> provides quality, affordable reproductive health care to women and men in southeast Ohio. Offers sexuality education programs for community organizations and schools.

United Campus Ministry >> promotes social justice by helping people put their religious faiths into action. UCM works to build bridges of understanding and respect among diverse groups in the Athens and Ohio University communities.
What is a CROP Hunger Walk?
"Neighbors walking together to take a stand against hunger in our world. Together we raise awareness and funds for international relief and development, as well as local hunger-fighting." [source]
Recognizing that the hope we have in Christ is lived out in our hope for one another, we respond with gifts that help our sisters and brothers around the world find the hope for a brighter future.
