Members of First Presbyterian Church, Athens, traveled to Tyler on Sunday, November 7, to worship with Church Under a Bridge, which encourages area ministries to engage alongside the homeless, poor and disenfranchised residents of East Texas. FPC members also delivered and distributed 30 of their handmade quilts to the homeless. The quilts are produced through FPC's "AGAPE Quilts" ministry, which meets regularly at the church. For more information on AGAPE Quilts, please call (903) 675-3530. You can find Church Under a Bridge on Facebook.
FPC Athens members and youth helped pack dozens of meals on Saturday, October 26, for The Rebecca Project, a nonprofit that provides hot meals to local elderly and disabled citizens of Athens. The Rebecca Project prepares meals every Saturday morning in the FPC fellowship hall and is always in need of volunteers to prepare and deliver food. For more information click here.
The temperatures were perfect on Saturday, November 6, as church members and their families gathered at the Neills' home in Athens for the annual church picnic. The menu included BBQ from Smokey B's Barbeque, along with various salads, desserts and tea. A big thanks to Janie Cole-Poncik & Cole Air Conditioning & Appliance Co. for helping load and deliver our tables and chairs to the event!
