In Church Activities

It’s Dove Time! Each year, First Presbyterian Church joins with other local houses of worship to participate in Person to Person’s (P2P) annual Dove Box program to provide food for families and seniors in our community who might otherwise go without during the holiday season.

COVID-19 has changed the way the Dove boxes will work again this year. In lieu of physically buying food for families, P2P is offering a digital white dove. A suggested $50 donation will be used to purchase a gift card to ShopRite and passed out to those who are in need. Each $50 contribution will cover one family or senior and donations can be made via check or cash and brought to Church as we’ll have a table at the rear of the Sanctuary the next few Sundays or mail your checks to the FPCNC, Main Office – Attn: Wendy Starr, 178 Oenoke Ridge Road, New Canaan, CT 06840 (Checks payable to FPCNC, mark for Dove Program). We will collect the white dove donations, but P2P will purchase and deliver the gift cards to the clients. Please hand in your donations by December 19.

Additionally, if you would rather give a donation for Scholarship or Emergency Assistance (green doves), you can do so directly on the P2P website https://p2phelps.org/greendove.  This is a wonderful and safe way to participate in this important ministry and the need is again great this year. Please join us in support of the Digital Dove program, which will run from mid-November to Monday, December 6th.

For more information, please contact the church office, Cindy Graziano, Jim Ely, or Bob Spangler.
