First Cumberland Presbyterian Church

“Loving God, Loving People”

We are an exciting church family with people of all ages and interests united by our common love for Jesus Christ and our desire to grow as God's children. Throughout the week we provide worship, educational, fellowship and ministry opportunities for children, youth and adults.

On these pages you'll find all kinds of information about our church and how you can get plugged in. Take your time to get to know us, and then let us know how we can partner with you in your journey of faith.

Together we'll get to know God better and discover the great things he has done for us in Jesus Christ. We'd love to have you join us!

FISH  Food Pantry Campaign

It is time to begin our FISH Food Pantry Campaign for 2015.  Our goal this year is raise a total of $4,500.00.  Marietta Cumberland Presbyterian Church assists us every year and has already sent us a check for $1,500.00.  Our partner church, Church of the Savior, helps us both with funding and with bagging.  This means that we will only need to raise somewhere between $1,500.00 and $2,000.00 by the end of March.  If you would like to contribute to this cause, make the check out to the church and mark it for FISH.  I want to thank Steve McCurry who does all the figuring and ordering from Second Harvest Food Bank around the middle of March.  Our needs include 6-8 people to help us unload the 200-plus cases of food into the Pantry after being delivered by Second Harvest the last week of March, the exact time to be announced later; we need 10-12 people to help with the bagging on Saturday mornings at 9:30 at the Pantry site on these dates – March 28, April 4, and April 11 (which the youth will take care of) – please sign up on the FISH bulletin board in the Narthex if you can help on any of these dates; and we need prayer to cover all aspects of the campaign.  The book of Proverbs tells us – “A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.”  May we be blessed as we share our food with the poor in this upcoming Fish Campaign.
