"Undie Sunday": June 2. We continue to be extremely low on, and in some cases completely out of, new men's and women's underwear in the Clothes Closet. This includes white cotton briefs, socks, t-shirts and women's sports bras in all sizes. To help meet the need, we are designating the first Sunday of each month as "Undie Sunday", to help you remember to bring in a few new pair of underwear, socks, etc. for the clothes closet (of course you may bring in your donations ANY Sunday). If you are able to help, we will be collecting these items in a bin in the chapel on Sundays, or you may leave them in the church office. Thanks for pitching in!
Celebrating the Ministry of Pastor Bo! After over 38 years of ordained ministry, and 17 years at First Presbyterian Church, our beloved pastor, The Reverend C. V. "Bo" Scarborough is retiring! Plans for honoring Bo and celebrating his ministry are in the works, but mark your calendars now and plan to come and celebrate with us on Sunday, June 9 from 3:00-5:00 pm.
We are collecting pictures and memorabilia from Bo's years of ministry, and would love to include a picture, special memory, note, card or other remembrance from you. You may send your information by May 20 to Diana in the church office. If you have a picture, please include your name and contact information so that we can return it to you when we have copied it. Come celebrate with Bo on June 9!
First Pres is now on Facebook, and we'll be sharing information and pictures about what's happening with our members and friends! If you have info or pictures you'd like to suggest for posting on our page, contact the church office. Check us out at:
