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.

C.A.R.E – Christians Activity Reaching Everyone

C.A.R.E. is an organized and structured ministry that everyone can be a part of,

and it only requires a commitment of one hour per month.
The C.A.R.E. Day Ministry is primarily for the visitation of our shut-ins.

The Hospital-Bound C.A.R.E Ministry is primarily for the visitation of our members in the hospital.

The C.A.R.E. Night teams send birthday and anniversary cards, and pray for the prayer requests of the congregation. The night teams meet during Wonderful Wednesdays at 7:00 PM

To join a C.A.R.E. team, please contact the church office.

Our World

First Presbyterian Church extends its love and compassion beyond the boundaries of the Cherryville city limits.

Many organizations and programs are supported on a state, national and international level. These programs are supported through the Western North Carolina Presbytery, The Synod of the Mid-Atlantic, and the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A.

The membership of First Presbyterian is active in its support of mission programs as it realizes the need to extend Christian sympathy and compassion to all regions of the world.
