What’s right about First Presbyterian Church?

First Presbyterian Church — Donalsonville, Georgia

Since 1898, Presbyterians in Donalsonville, Georgia, have been striving to be faithful to the great commandment and commission. Members visit in the county jail and communion is served there monthly. The congregation tutors students after school in the Friendship House of Jesus community ministry. A group of ladies meet two mornings a week to sew “Threads of Love,” and their creations from donated fabric are distributed locally, nationally an internationally. A mission trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, marked the church’s first international endeavor in 2017; and in 2018, 18 youth served for a week in Bayou La Batre, Alabama, in a Youthworks camp. The church is a regional drop-off site for Operation Christmas Child boxes. We host one of Flint River Presbytery’s Stop Hunger Now’s meal packing locations.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
