First Presbyterian is joining other Presbyterian & Methodist churches in Buncombe County to build the 2018 Presbyterian-Methodist House! The house will be built at at 34 Beale Road in Arden, and the homeowner will be Shaketia Simpson. A mother of two children, Shaketia said this on her Habitat application: “I want to show my children that if they work hard and prepare financially, it is possible to make the dream of owning a home come true.” See the Habitat website for more details about the Simpson family and the Presbyterian-Methodist house.

On Sunday, July 15 we will have a Moment for Mission inviting the congregation to contribute towards the cost of the 2018 Presbyterian-Methodist House. Donations can be made with cash or check (payable to FPC-A), or through our website. We will receive donations beginning July 15 and extending through August.

A sign-up sheet for volunteer opportunities (along with release forms) is in the Wallace Foyer. A typical workday is 8:15 am - 3:30 pm. Youth ages 16-17 can volunteer as well. Possible dates to volunteer include: 

  • Thursday, July 26
  • Saturday August 4
  • Thursday, August 9
  • Thursday, August 23
  • Thursdays September 6, 13, 20
