On Saturday, September 16, 2023 we had another great meal packaging event with Rise Against Hunger.
Every age and ability contributed to completing 9,288 meals in around 2 hours. Thank you for your participation and support! We can't wait to do it again next year.
First Presbyterian Church of Napa has a long history of serving others through our mission initiatives in the city of Napa, the Napa Valley, the U.S., and internationally.
One of our signature efforts was the creation of The Table, an all-volunteer free-meal program operated by more than two dozen local community and faith groups and hosted at our church facility.
Throughout the year, we support the Presbyterian Day School, a preschool and childcare facility on our church campus serving families with children ages 2-5.
We also support mission activities throughout the year, such as assembling backpacks for families in transitional housing through Abode Services in Napa, CA, meal-packaging with Rise Against Hunger, building homes in Mexico with YWAM (Youth with a Mission) and Homes of Hope (checkout our trip from 2021 HERE), and filling shoeboxes with gifts for children around the world distributed through Samaritan's Purse.
During COVID, we have also extended use of our facility to the local Boys and Girls Club to serve as a distance learning site for 40-50 children during the week, and continue to encourage use of our facility for performing art groups and teachers.
If your group is interested in learning more about how to partner with us to serve our community, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
