Mission & Service

“The mission of the First Presbyterian Church is to glorify God by preparing, nurturing,
and  inspiring people for Christian Service in God’s world.”

(First Presbyterian Church Mission Statement)

 The members of this church prepare for service through Christian Education, Worship, Music and Fellowship. Properly equipped, members serve in many ways.

You will find our members working to provide Christian care through committees like Pastors’ Aides. Locally, the church sponsors the annual Christmas Basket program and operates a very successful kindergarten.  Members serve at places like Hartsville Interfaith Ministries (HIM), the Hartsville Soup Kitchen, the Food Bank, Relay for Life and Habitat for Humanity. National and international mission opportunities are also sponsored.  In the past, we have sent groups to Mexico to build homes for the poor and to New Orleans, Kentucky, and West Virginia to to repair homes.  Recently we sent a team to Kenya to explore mission opportunities.

By using the drop down menu, you will find information on many of the activities that make up the life of the church. The overall themes are preparation and service. There are many opportunities to participate and serve, and all people are welcome.  Also, you can donate to specific church funds that support different activities.
