Food Outreach Ministry
FPC Food Outreach Ministry packs and distributes food in our community every Tuesday. Our partner is Sweetwater Mission in Austell. We serve 250 families each week. Adult volunteers pack at Sweetwater between 9-11:30 AM. Volunteers of high school age and older distribute food in our parking lot on Tuesday evenings between 5-7:00 PM. In addition to morning and afternoon volunteer hours, we also accept donations of shelf-stable boxed and canned goods (pop top), diapers, baby wipes, and feminine hygiene products. If you (or your civic group) are interested in getting involved, please contact Martie Moore at MartieMoore@fpcmarietta.org

More than 6,000 volunteers serve through MUST, a multifaceted community ministry connecting people who have a desire to help with those who need help the most. Volunteer opportunities include after school tutoring and mentoring; manning the thrift shop or volunteering at the homeless shelter; giving food, clothing, and other items; running in the Thanksgiving Day Gobble Jog; or getting involved in the summer lunch program. First Presbyterian Church is a MUST Summer Lunch distribution site.
Club 3:30 is an afterschool program for kids from local elementary schools. We need volunteers to provide a nurturing environment for these kids, helping them with homework, providing them with snack and hosting parties for special occasions. Contact Jauana Eidelwein.
Because Wednesday Night Supper has not resumed, the Mission Council and Club 3:30 would like to invite members of the congregation to assist in a meal for the 24 students enrolled in Club 3:30 on Wednesday afternoons at 5pm. Sign up here.
