Here at First Church, we have a variety of ways we are reaching those in need. We work together to serve our local community by providing food, clothing, educational support, and the word of God. Through faith in action, we are reaching out beyond the walls of the church to provide real-life services that meet the needs of our community.



From January 6 through March 13, 2020, First Church will offer a warm place to spend the night to those who might otherwise be alone and cold. If you would be interested in serving as an overnight host, please contact John Best at 570-337-9048 or [email protected]

We will be providing meals for guests at our Code Blue Warming Ministry starting January 12th. If you are interested in providing a meal, please sign up here.
