Missions & Outreach

First Presbyterian Church (FPC) has forged partnerships with numerous local non-profit and church groups to address compelling needs in our community and the surrounding area.

Soup Kitchen

Each Tuesday, from 4:30-5:30 pm, nutritious, free meals are available at the Church – no questions asked, no prequalification required. We understand that families and individuals move in and out of times of need due to circumstances in life. Working with several other congregations in our area, we serve as the host site for these Meals-To-Go.

Barberton Area Community Ministries

Birthed in our congregation, Barberton Area Community Ministries has now successfully outgrown its former space. BACM primarily serves those who live in the 44203 zip code area. In 2021, BACM provided assistance to 9,551 households, assisting with 430,861 meals.

From its inception to the present day, First Presbyterian Church continues to support BACM in significant ways through donations of canned and boxed goods and financial support.

Neighborhood Cupboard

When a local business owner decided to end their support for a neighborhood food cupboard, the members of First Presbyterian Church stepped in to ensure the continuation of this vital, local mission.

Teaming up with our local Salvation Army, our members regularly stock the neighborhood cupboard to safeguard these necessary food items for persons in need.
