As Christians, Christ has called us to reach out with compassion to those who are troubled, suffering, and in need. Our church loves to serve those in our own church, in our community, in our nation, and throughout the world.
First Presbyterian has a long history of ministry in the community and beyond. Following the closing of the mills in 2003, First Presbyterian hosted an emergency food pantry for the unemployed workers, using the Fellowship Hall for this purpose for six months. The church also actively participated in a Community Recovery Network. This network of churches and agencies provided short-term relief to the former Pillowtex workers, then went on to established new on-going ministries, such as a Kannapolis food pantry (which has now grown to several pantries.)
