"Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation." [Matthew 16:15]
About Our Mission Partnerships.
As believers, we are called to make a positive difference in the world, through actively spreading the Lord’s words and love. At First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale, we partner with local and global organizations to meet the physical and spiritual needs of other communities. If you desire to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus by serving in mission, we would love for you to join us.
The Facemask Project gave out over 1,000 hours of community service to the church’s middle and high school students. An individual in the community (not a church member) single handedly made over 440 masks, which were sent to all the seniors in our church. Our first responders and medical workers thought these were one of their best gifts ever. At the time, PPE was scarce and people were reusing masks and gowns. Our masks made them feel so loved and appreciated. And for the people who worked on this project—it gave them purpose and allowed them to serve others which filled them up and gave them comfort during a scary and sad time.
Serve locally and globally.
