Mission and Outreach
First Presbyterian is a congregation dedicated to mission and outreach. Our mission is to proclaim the love of Christ both in word and in deed.
The Haiti Education Fund, a genuinely ecumenical mission organization dedicated to building schools and educating young people in Haiti, was started by our members and continues to be headquartered at First Presbyterian. Also, Global Village Education Foundation with its ministry of education to Kenya, Africa, is based at First Presbyterian.
Our members are active in local missions, such as Habitat for Humanity, Interfaith Help
Service, Interfaith Health Clinic, CareNet, South Arkansas Fights
AIDS (SAFA), Hope Landing and the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen. First Presbyterian supports
regional Presbyterian mission projects like the Vera Lloyd Children's Home
and Evergreen Services. Our members also support the The One Great
Hour of Sharing and the Christmas Joy Gift of the Presbyterian
Church (USA). See our Missions Page
for more details.
First Presbyterian People
Of course, what Makes First Presbyterian really special is its people. All the
buildings, programs and resources in the world can do nothing without dedicated
and faithful members who take their calling as disciples seriously. The history
of the First Presbyterian Church in El Dorado has been one of working to make a
difference. We are proud of our tradition of loving and faithful service to the
community and the world.
We like to have fun, too! Christ's disciples ought to be joyful people. We love food and fellowship, celebrations of the season and just plain getting together to work and play. Check out our photo gallery for snapshots of our members at work and play.
