Global Mission

Working with the Presbyterian Mission Agency of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Outreach Foundation, Mission Eurasia (formerly Russian Ministries) and other Christian mission organizations, the Global Missions Committee assists the members of First Presbyterian Church in fulfilling our obligation to obey the Great Commission.

RUSSION SISTER CHURCH

In 1991, First Presbyterian Church became the first congregation in the Presbyterian Church USA to establish a Sister Church relationship with a congregation in the former Soviet Union, the Saltykovka Evangelical Christian Baptist Church. With help from First Presbyterian Church, Outreach Foundation of PCUSA, and churches from other denominations, a very functional Christian Education building was constructed. Opened in 1992, this building is being utilized daily as a center for Christian evangelism, education and mission. First Presbyterian Church continues to provide financial support for physical and program needs as well as many outreach programs (youth camps, prison ministry, orphaned children, and military ministry).  More information on the sister church program on Outreach Foundation's web site can be found at  www.theoutreachfoundation.org.
