There is a wonderful community wide ministry taking place in Myrtle Beach. All Nations Café provides a meeting place for J1 & H2B international students working in Myrtle Beach for the summer. There are approximately 4,000 students in town working and around 200 students fed each night. All Nations Cafe is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays serving food from 6 to 8 PM and offers games and fellowship until 10. Seacoast Vineyards (504 27th Ave N) has provided the meeting place. Various churches are organizing and providing food.

Visiting Mission Teams in the Summer Months
Each summer First Presbyterian Church offers youth, college students, and adults mission trip sponsorships. For several weeks during May, June, July, and August,  mission teams from churches across the United States have the opportunity to gather and do mission work together in the Myrtle Beach Community. These mission groups work on disaster relief, in the Racepath community, and in the Habitat for Humanity community of Hopes Crossing, providing assistance to families with home improvement needs in Horry County.

HABITAT OFFERING

Received at Christmas Eve Services
With your help, more deserving families will be “home” for Christmas. Our Christmas Eve offering for Habitat is used to build Habitat Houses for people who need a helping hand to live in a decent house. It was said of Jesus, who was born in a manger, “He hath nowhere to lay his head,” so we provide home in celebration of His birth. Click, to learn more abbout Habitat for Humanity.

Your donations continue to help build and provide a home for families in our community.

Operation Christmas

843.448.4496 for more information.

Get in the Spirit by helping bring Christmas to local families in need! Operation Christmas, co-sponsored by the Youth Ministry and Mission Ministry Teams, has become a tradition at FPC and is one of the largest local mission projects. FPC will adopt children in the Myrtle Beach community whose families need help providing gifts at Christmas.

Each December, we will have a First Presbyterian Store at our Grissom Campus where our adopted families will be invited to “shop” with the help of a “personal shopper.” Of course, there is no charge for their selections. While parents are “shopping,” their children will be entertained in the Great Hall with games, crafts, refreshments, and a visit from Santa.

Santa’s Helpers (adults & youth) are needed to make purchases to stock our store, help set up the FPC store, prepare for our Christmas party, entertain our adopted children at the party, and serve as “personal shoppers’ or gift wrappers.”

Monetary Gifts to the Christmas Fund are needed to provide Santa’s Helpers with the resources to bring Christmas to these children (300 children are anticipate this year and the average expenditure is $100/child). Gifts may be given in honor of friends, business associates, and loved ones. Acknowledgements will be sent to you and to the honoree.
