First Pres COVID Fund

The First Pres COVID Fund is supporting initiatives by our Mission Partners and organizations in the community in response to the difficulties faced by our neighbors due to COVID-19.

Shop Rummage Online

Shop from your computer or phone! In an effort to raise money for our partners whose needs are beyond normal times, and with the uncertainty of large in-person sales, our rummage sales are going virtual!

First Pres Food Depot

We are collecting food donations to support the efforts of Beacon Place in Waukegan in distributing food weekly. Over 325 children and adults participate in their programs and receive their Emergency Support Packages.

First Pres is blessed with abundant opportunities for hands-on ministries in the community that offer a great way to serve our neighbors through tutoring, staffing the PADS overnight shelter, working at local soup kitchens, Rummage and more. Contact info@firstchurchlf.org for more information about serving and our mission partners.
