Service and Outreach

We believe that the highest form of gratitude to God is to serve the life of our neighbors. FIrst Presbyterian Church members have long been involved in developing initiatives and supporting long-term partnerships that serve the needs of communities at the church, in Greenwich and Stamford, and around the world. Through addressing issues of hunger, education, poverty, displacement, aging, and much more, First Presbyterian Church hopes to invigorate our communities.

Members and friends are encouraged to participate together in the transformative process of giving and sharing with others. Our Mission Engagement Committee offers exceptional opportunities for all ages and through several different groups to explore the faith in your heart through the work of your hands to demonstrate God's grace. 

It is through your generosity of time and presence that so much is able to happen here. We would love for you to explore and share your gifts!

Their mission is to enable and empower children to own their dreams! These children flourish in group activities, learning experiences, and celebrations in a safe and joyful environment fostered by volunteers willing to take time out of their weekends and holiday afternoons. There are various opportunities to serve the Center throughout the year like Thanksgiving Dinner, the Holiday Feast, Day of Faithful Service, and many others.

Neighbor to Neighbor

 Neighbor to Neighbor is a nonsectarian non-profit organization serving Greenwich residents in-need through the exchange of food, clothing, and basic living essentials in an atmosphere of kindness and respect. They envision a caring community where everyone has access to nutritious meals and clothing. First Presbyterian has a long history with Neighbor to Neighbor, including a significant gift from the Edna Anderson Fund toward their proposed new building. Our church’s most dedicated volunteers spend hundreds of service hours on an annual basis sorting through clothing donations and organizing the food pantry.


Call-A-Ride provides free door-to-door transportation for Greenwich's ambulatory senior citizens who lack other means of transportation to doctor appointments, drug stores, attorneys, banks, shopping, hair appointments, Election Day polling sites, and even visiting with friends. FPCG was instrumental in the formation of Call-A-Ride nearly 4 decades ago, and still provides office space and parking at the Nursery School Collyer Center property.

If you are also in need of a ride, and cannot arrange one for yourself, call (203) 661-6633 to schedule a pick-up.
