2014 Interfaith Backpack Project ~ 22 Years of Giving
This will FPCL's 22nd year to be involved with this project. In 1993 there were only three congregations providing backpacks for less-advantaged children in Livermore. This year there are eight congregations that will provide nearly 800 children with backpacks filled with supplies that they'll need to start the school year and a giftcard for a new pair of shoes will also be included.
Our church has committed to 150 backpacks again this year. With your help, we can succeed in reaching this goal.
A contribution of $40 will cover the cost of one backpack, supplies and a shoe card, but any amount will be greatly appreciated. Contact Linda Alexander at 925-449-9305 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Livermore Homeless Refuge
Our church has partnered with several churches in Livermore to be a part of the Livermore Homeless Refuge. FPCL is the weekend location for the refuge when the weather conditions are projected to drop below 40 degrees and/or rain is expected.
First Presbyterian Church Livermore hosts weekend guests November through April, as needed.
Go here to sign up and bring a meal.
“I will bless you so that you will be a blessing to others.”
-God’s words to Abraham in Genesis 12
FPCL is not a church that sees itself as its own separate community, but rather understands itself as a part of the larger Livermore and Tri-Valley community. We strive to be a part of what makes our larger community stronger.
Neighbor2Neighbor is a program that plans and creates opportunities for our church to engage in acts of service and kindness that strengthen and help our community. These opportunities are intentionally designed to be “anonymous” acts of service and are accessible to people of ALL AGES. Neighbor2Neighbor is one way that our church seeks to “bless” our community without expecting anything in return. See more details here.
Open Heart Kitchen
A community of dedicated FPCL volunteers contributes to Open Heart Kitchen located at the Vineyard Christian Fellowship Church, 460 N. Livermore Ave. Livermore, CA from 3:30 to 6:30 on the 3rd Thursday of every month.
Volunteers - 18 years of age and over can contribute in two ways:
packing sack lunches for students of local schools to be distributed on Fridays
serving hot meals to guests of the kitchen
FPCL maintains a list of willing volunteers and asks monthly who can participate and which job they prefer.
To share time with a great community of volunteers, please contact Kate Mullen at 925-980-9841 or email@example.com
