The Hands, Heart, and Feet of Jesus: Dr. Cynthia M. Benz

How can we show people the hands, heart, and feet of Jesus? Well, one way is to serve those in need in our community. In this video, Cindy shares information about our Meals on Wheels toiletry drive, and demonstrates how to prepare a bag for drop off at the PAD.

Our Mission and Vision

Following the Word with Christ’s heart into the world with open arms spreading the Good News, we are committed disciples of Christ engaged in God’s Word, joyfully united in worship and work, urgently taking the Good News into our community and the world.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) with a long tradition of service and leadership in the Gastonia community and in the Presbytery of Western North Carolina.

Throughout the season of Lent, a special offering will be collected for One Great Hour of Sharing. OGHS is the largest way that Presbyterians join together to share God’s love worldwide.  Each gift helps to improve the lives of people in challenging situations through rebuilding efforts, sponsoring food security programs, and by partnering with communities to promote self-development.  Checks can sent by mail, made out to First Presbyterian Church with “OGHS” in the memo line, or gifts can be given online at www.fpcgastonia.org/giving
