Food Voucher Distribution Program

Our long time community service, the Food Voucher Distribution Program, has returned. The partnership of First Presbyterian Church of Ferguson and the Dellwood Save-A-Lot grocery store has resumed to provide food to the Ferguson community (zip codes, 63135 and 63136).

Once a month we welcome residents in need. At Save-A-Lot, the voucher recipient will shop for themselves and then receive the listed grocery items at no cost to them.  Their grocery items can include milk, eggs, canned meats and more.

We are grateful that charitable giving, allowed us to distribute Aldi gift cards for so many months.

*The vouchers are distributed in person at First Presbyterian Church of Ferguson.  You must be present to receive the vouchers.

Please contact us by phone at (314) 522-8542 or by email at fergpres@gmail.com if you have any questions about this program.

Programs
First Presbyterian church welcomes, Educate Now to Achieve Later (ENAL) After-School Tutoring Program.
Beginning Monday, June 22, ENAL will be using our Sunday School rooms and kitchen. Monday through Friday, the ENAL Summer Initiative program will provide Riverview Garden students, intensive tutoring in reading and math and offers enrichment activities (i.e. St. Louis Science Center, Robotics, Swimming Lessons, Cooking Classes, etc.). Each Friday, each ENAL program participants go out into the community (City Museum, Forest Park Forever, St. Louis Science Center, Community Swimming, Bowling, etc.) where they learn team building and character through modeled behavior and directives that promote positive decision making.
Thank you Shawntelle (Founder of SoulFisher Ministries) and Duane Mazzacavallo for working together to bring this valuable program to our attention and our building.

Little Bit Foundation School Supplies Drive

This summer we are supporting a drive for the Little Bit Foundation to collect school supplies for the upcoming year. Due to coronavirus they have been unable to take donations since March. Now that Little Bit is able to accept donations, let’s give school supplies to help local students be excited to learn in the fall! The Church Outreach Committee has chosen to help the students with the purchase of crayons and/or colored pencils – let’s COLOR THEIR WORLD!
 
You can purchase the items and bring them to church or you can purchase directly on Amazon and have them delivered right to the Little Bit Foundation. 

If you would like to purchase on Amazon, please use this url 
https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/20TMYCQMNSC9Q/ref=hz_ls_biz_ex and send your order to The Little Bit Foundation, 516 Hanley Industrial Court, Brentwood, MO 63144. Please add First Presbyterian of Ferguson to the gift receipt so they will associate your donation to our church. 


If you have any questions on how to do this, please call (314) 522-8542 or email fergpres@gmail.com, to connect with Jan Foster or Jamie McDonald.
