Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. First Presbyterian Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.
Drake Allen recieved his Eagle Scout Award!
Drake was recognized during the May 31st Church service for achieving the highest Scouting Rank.
In May the Mission Committee delivered 422 diapers and 2 hand-knit baby blankets to the Lamb's Inn - which supports teenaged parents in this area. They were quite grateful.
FREE COMMUNITY MEAL
We have successfully hosted 3 community meals on the 4th Tuesday of March, April and May. Our congregation has donated baked goods and lots of fruit for this project. As part of the coalition of churches in Leavenworth, we are all helping to feed God's hungry children. Our facility has worked so well as we have a good kitchen, fellowship hall with plenty of tables and chairs, and that little side entrance on 4th Street for our guests.
The Mission Committee has chosen the high school as the recipient of our school supply collection this summer. A detailed list will be in the next "Leaven". 50% of LHS students are eligible for free lunches. Their need for school supplies as well as personal hygiene items and even food and shelter is ongoing. The teachers, principal and Communities in Schools (CIS) in the Midwest monitor these needs and donations. To get started we ask that on our travels this summer we collect shampoos,
soaps, toothbrushes, etc. offered in motels and hotels. We will have a collection basket for such items at the church.

Interested in learning how to knit? If you already know how, are you willing to teach others? We are organizing a group wanting to knit scarves or hats as Christmas gifts for our Community Meal patrons. Carol Beall has agreed to do a class on Wednesdays, at 9:30 a.m. at the church. Bring a skein of yarn and a pair of knitting needles (any size - medium to large) and let's get started. We can knit, visit with friends, and have a lot of fun. Please come and bring a friend who might want to join us.
