Caring Ministries

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are your doing for others?’”


Please let the Board of Deacons Care Team Coordinators listed below or the church office (570-586-6306) know if anyone is in need of care. We're here for First Presbyterian Church members and friends and we count on all of you to let us know when help is needed. This is our ministry and our Christian privilege to care for you.

Here are things you can do to make a difference:

  • Adopt a Highway: Our congregation is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's Adopt-A-Highway program. We are responsible for cleaning the top section of the Morgan Highway four times a year.
  • Coups for troops - Coups for Troops is a non profit organization that collects manufacturer's coupons and distributes them to current military families that desire to use them. Military families are allowed to use the coupons up to six months past their expiration date. Please put unused clipped coupons in basket found in the Narthex.
