Opportunities to Give Back
First Presbyterian Church of Maitland has a meaningful Missions Outreach Ministry (MOM) and actively supports faith-based charities at home and around the world with our time, talents and resources. We emphasize six key areas: Basic Human Need, Children and Youth, Compassion, Evangelism, Hunger Programs, and Missions.
You are welcome to participate in any of our efforts by contacting Joe McKinney or the Missions Ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Maitland, (407) 644-3455. You are also invited to attend FPCM Missions Ministry meetings, held the first Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m.

The Two Cents Per Meal Program
P.A.T.H. (Presbyterian Answer to Hunger) administers Two Cents Per Meal, a partnership of prayer, gifts and mutual understanding which aids important answer-to-hunger projects in Florida and underdeveloped nations. First Presbyterian Church of Maitland along with 79 other churches in Central Florida Presbytery sponsors Two Cents Per Meal, which raises approximately $95,000 annually. Two Cents Per Meal is a wonderful way for families to be involved and to teach children the joy of participating in a collective effort to help others. Each participant contributes just 2 cents for each meal they consume during the course of a month, which is presented at worship the second Sunday of each month. All of those carefully collected pennies support the five partner missions here and abroad.
If you would like to become involved or provide financial assistance to P.A.T.H. and Two Cents Per Meal worldwide works please contact Ray Crickenberger, P.A.T.H. Chair, or the Missions Ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Maitland, 407-644-3455.

FAITH IN ACTION “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me…Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these, my brothers, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:35-40
