First Presbyterian Church Of Corvallis Believes Deeply in the Cause of Mission, Locally and Globally.

church mission

Our Work ranges from sending teams to New Orleans, (five teams have gone since Katrina hit), to helping develop a local Corvallis drop-in center for the homeless, to land mine work in Cambodia.

In all these and the other ways we serve, our goal is simply and profoundly, to love our neighbors. Recently, we tithed money from our Dennnis Hall Capital Campaign to four organizations: Old Mill Center in Corvallis; Kids for Kids in Darfur; Malawi’s Medical Education Fund; Haiti’s Moringa Tree Nutrition Program.

Global Mission Opportunities

1st Presbyterian Church has always looked ahead
to see where there is a need in the world
that has not been fully met.

Before the land mines were a household term, this church worked to develop a program in Cambodia for those who had lost limbs to land mine accidents. This ministry continues today and is responsible for providing approximately 4% of all prosthesis in Cambodia.

Local Mission Opportunities

First Presbyterian Church has a nearly
155 year history of involvement with the
local Corvallis Community.

Community Outreach’s direct services come with resources and support to effect lasting change. Our combination of emergency service and case management—used in the Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing Program, Families in Transition, and Homeless Emergency Services programs—gives people enough time, encouragement, and information to turn emergency shelter into long-term change and achievement.
The mission of the Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence is two-fold:
To provide services and support to those affected by sexual and domestic violence, and
To provide education and leadership within the community to change the societal conditions that cultivate these forms of violence.
