Missions

First Presbyterian has long been committed to helping those who are less fortunate beyond the church's walls. These are some of our current mission projects. New projects and new committee members are always welcome. Please contact Mission Chair, Bruce Erwin, with ideas or availability.

Backpacks for Kids

Sometimes families in our local and surrounding areas  lack the financial resources to buy school supplies for their children. Every fall, our church purchases and fills backpacks with school supplies and distributes them to the schools in Haddon Heights, Barrington and Lawnside for distribution to students who need them.
