*It’s that time of year again! Students are heading off to college or continuing commitments as military personnel. Our church has a ministry to stay in touch with these individuals when they’re away from home. If you would like to include your young person in this ministry, please send the following information to Janean Shirley at [email protected].
College/University/Branch of Service:
*Are you looking for a way to serve at First Presbyterian Church? Well, do we have an opportunity for you! You can be a part of FPC’s ministry that reaches out to our college students and military personnel. Here is a summary of what we would ask you to do to participate in this ministry:
1. Pray for your young adult(s).
2. Send text messages or make a phone call to let them know they are being thought about and prayed for–sharing a special scripture is great.
3. Send cards or notes to let them know they are being thought about and prayed for.
4. Remember birthdays and holidays–gift cards or goodies from home are great for these occasions!
If you are interested in helping with this ministry, please contact Janean Shirley at 601-630-7858 (phone or text) or [email protected]
