Harvest of Hope

Responding to the call of Jesus Christ, the Harvest of Hope Food Pantry feeds the hungry, promotes physical and spiritual health, and brings people together in a community of love. First Presbyterian of Americus supports Harvest of Hope monthly with a financial contribution and by collecting food donation items. These items can be brought to Sunday 11am worship or to the church office Monday-Thursday 9am - 3pm.

As we are fed each month by our Lord Jesus through Holy Communion, we do our best to help feed others in need.

Community Services Ministry (CSM):

The Community Services Ministry is an ecumenical crisis ministry offering utility payment assistance to neighbors in need. On Thursdays from 9:00 am to 11:30 am volunteers from member churches of the Sumter Area Ministerial Association run this outreach program at 127 Jackson Street to counsel, pray, and offer financial assistance.

Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger is growing a global movement to end hunger by empowering communities, nourishing lives and responding to emergencies. Rise Against Hunger meal packaging volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are then distributed to partners in countries around the world. Annually, on World Communion Sunday, First Presbyterian Church of Americus participates in a collaborative food packing event with a goal to package 10,000 meals.

RADIO MINISTRY:

Over two decades ago the church had a vision to reach out with the gospel by broadcasting the Sunday worship service over WISK FM radio. Listeners are encouraged to download bulletins from this web site and email or call in prayer requests.
