On-Going Opportunities to Serve

Because-Its-What-We-Do


Caring Hands Crafters

     We support the Knots of Love program by crocheting and knitting caps for cancer patients as well as other items that bring comfort to at-risk babies and their families, veterans, and chemotherapy patients. We meet monthly for refreshments, laughs, and conversation where we, in turn, support each other in various projects of our own chosing which have been worked on independently. Guidelines for the projects are here and we warmly welcome you to find out more about the Caring Hands Crafters.


Prayer Ministry

     Nearly 100 "prayer warriors" participate in Alexandria Church's prayer ministry.  The nature of the prayers varies widely.  We pray for healing (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, etc.); for those who mourn; for families embracing both joys and sorrows; for local, community, and global concerns; and so forth. These confidential requests for prayer are conveyed to our prayer members via email. To send a request to the prayer ministry coordinators email them at afpcprayerchain@gmail.com.  They will then pass your request along to the group for prayer.  You can also email them if you would like to join the ministry and offer prayer for those who request it.


Shop Rite Grocery Store Gift Card Fund Raiser

     This on-going fund raiser supports the good works of our youth group.  When you purchase a Shop Rite gift card through our program, our youth receive 5% of the total price of the card which will be applied toward their annual summer mission trip.  To order cards, send in your check payable to Alexandria First Presbyterian Church.  Indicate in the memo section of your check how much you wish to spend on the gift card.  Cards are available in increments of $25 ($25, 50, 100, etc.).  You will be notified when the card arrives at the church, about 7 days later.  Your gift card will be issued for the full value that you request; Shop Rite contributes the 5%.  Print a flyer to share with friends


Flower Ministry

     Flowers are given to the glory of God and their beauty enhances our Sunday morning worship. Flower donations may be given in memory of a loved one, in celebration of a life-event, or in honor of most anything. A brief explanation of your donation will be listed in the Sunday bulletin or it may be kept anonymous if you desire. You may take your flowers home with you after the last service of the day or ask our deacons to deliver them to a shut-in or a hospital. Detailed instructions are in the folder hanging next to the flower calendar in Fellowship Hall or you may call the church office for assistance.

 

Personal Products for the Homeless

     Unused sample-sized shampoo, soap, mouth wash, and lotion--complimentary in most hotels--are being collected and given to the clients of the Trenton Rescue Mission and NORSWECAP of Phillipsburg. When you travel, bring these items home with you and add them to the collection box in Fellowship Hall. In addition, store bought deodorant, toothpaste, shaving supplies, and other personal products are welcome.

 

The Food Pantry

     Donations are stored near the bottom of the steps leading from the narthex to the Youth Center (ask a Sunday usher to show you where) and are available to any church member or visitor who has a need without cost or obligation. In addition, donations from our pantry are regularly brought to the Frenchtown Food Pantry where they serve a larger but local population. There is always a need for non-perishable foods and full-sized personal products. You may also support this ministry by sending a check to Frenchtown Presbyterian Church with "food pantry" written in the memo section. Financial support such as this allows them to purchase perishable foods like yogurt, cheese, meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, and eggs.
