Serving our Community

First Presbyterian Church

 Our Community

First Presbyterian Church is a church for the community.

We support the following ministries as well as others in Cherryville and surrounding areas.

Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon

Backpack Ministry

Our Backpack Ministry provides food over the weekend to students in need during the school year.  Placing food in a backpack is a stigma-free way for students to take food home on Fridays to help feed their family. 

“ ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40 

Please contact the church office if you would like to volunteer with this ministry.
