The welfare of our neighbors has always been a matter of concern for First Presbyterian Church. We have a long history of involvement in mission and outreach to help those in need in Sumter.
This church participates in ongoing involvement with ministries such as Habitat for Humanity and United Ministries. There is involvement in short term projects as well such as donating and installing smoke detectors in homes in an economically underprivileged section of town, feeding the homeless in Operation Inasmuch, and landscaping around a local assisted living facility. Jesus’ instruction to “love our neighbor” can take many forms in trying to meet physical as well as spiritual needs. Involvement in mission and outreach allows people in this congregation to use their talents and spiritual gifts to live out their call to witness to their faith.

Sumter Habitat for Humanity
At Habitat for Humanity, they build. They build because they believe everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. More than building homes, they build communities, they build hope and they build the opportunity for families to help themselves.
Volunteers and donations help families break the cycle of poverty and build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education and other essentials. Your support can help us do more in all the many ways that Habitat builds.
