Food PantryHand Up Food Pantry

The Pantry appreciates receiving jelly and jam for the children’s cupboard, which is a special kid-only area with kid-friendly and favorite foods.

We continue to need toilet paper, plastic bags, egg cartons and would appreciate dish soap as well.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity’s InterfaithCoalition, of which First Presbyterian Church is a part, has started work on our new house for this year.

The address is 3936 N. 21st St, and we are actively seeking volunteers to help us out. No experience is necessary, you learn by doing, and if you have just part of the day free on any Satursday through the first part of December, come help us out! YOU can work half a day, or a full day. For more information, go to or contact Paul Jelinek at 402 960-8901.

Schuyler Vacation Bible School

This mission project began in 1998 as several church- es got together and traveled to Schuyler, Nebraska to host a VBS for the children of Schuyler.

First Presbyterian Church joined this ongoing project in 2009. Our goal in hosting VBS is to simply share the Good New of Jesus Christ with the children of Schuyler. Over the years we have developed great relationships with these young people and for some it is the highlight of their summer.

Last summer we hosted a one day event in the middle of the week for over 75 children. This summer our plans are underway to once again share the good news of Jesus with the children of Schuyler but we need your help. Please consider a way in which you can help us continue this ministry – whether it be by volunteering to go with us, prepping crafts, shopping for supplies, or simply praying for this mission project!

It is an amazing ministry that we have been able to offer to the Schuyler community and the impact that we are able to have on over 100 children and their families is incredible.

YOU can participate in this group just by calling the church, 402 345-5383 and ask for Pastor Jenni
