Community Involvement

The purpose of community involvement is to better the community and expand God’s kingdom in Orangeburg. This is done through a variety of local missions and developing partnerships with other local churches. Some of our current outreach opportunities:

Carpenters for Christ. This ministry builds mostly wheelchair ramps for elderly, and also does carpentry work to improve the quality of life for those in need. If interested, please contact Preston Walter at 531-5009 or Rob Miller at 536-2080.

Thanksgiving boxes. First Presbyterian Church annually collects food and distributes it in “thanksgiving boxes” to those in need. Watch for further communication concerning this ministry at church.

Coat ministry. First Presbyterian Church annually collects coats for distribution for those in need. If you would like to donate a coat, simply bring it to the church office.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). When a disaster strikes, whether natural or man-made, this ministry coordinates with the Red Cross and other national, state and local disaster assistance programs in order to provide timely and efficient use of resources in helping those in need. If interested, please contact Preston Walter at 531-5009.

Habitat for Humanity. First Presbyterian Church works closely with and supports bettering the community through the wonderful ministry of Habitat for Humanity. For more information please contact Jamie Bozardt at 536-2300.

Blood Drives. First Presbyterian regularly participates in blood drives, helping keep the blood bank in operation. Watch for further communication in the church concerning the next blood drive.

We are currently developing relationships with other community churches to effectively pool resources and spread the Word of Jesus Christ. Watch for further communication at church.
