We are again celebrating “Souper Bowl Sunday” on February 2, 2014.
This is a wonderful opportunity to share our food items and/or cash donations with those who are in need. Please bring in non-perishable food items or cash donations and help fill our soup kettles. All food items will be used to fill our Deacon’s food pantry and Bread by the Bay as a community outreach program.
We appreciate all you do to help this project out!

On Saturday, September 28th, youth from First Presbyterian Church’s newly formed youth group traveled to Milwaukee’s near South Side to take part in Milwaukee’s first year of participating if the ‘Big Day of Serving’, a national movement to bring youth together to serve. More than 400 participants from local and out-of-state youth groups, along with neighborhood residents, worked on projects that included painting porches, cleaning vacant lots, and renovating parks. The Oconto youth began the day in worship and continued by forming two teams that painted porches, landscaped yards, and cleaned up trash. It was moving to see the gratitude from the residents who came out to help and say thank you, as well as seeing the hearts of the youth being transformed. If you would like to take part in First Presbyterian’s Youth Group and mission trips such as this one, please feel free to join us on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 133 Jackson Street – all are welcome!
Check out a video of the youth posted on our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/FirstPresbyOconto
