Social Witness Ministry


A new ministry is in the initial stages of formation at First Presbyterian Church. Under the auspices of Planning & Research, and led by Henry Brown, this small group began meeting last fall to discuss how FPC might do more to shine Christ’s light into the world. Initial discussions highlighted a wide range of topics of interest to the group and ways to engage with these various topics.


The ministry chose two topics to address initially: racial reconciliation and environmental stewardship. As first steps, the group explored educational opportunities and sought ways to live out our call to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world.

Join with the Social Witness ministry as we learn how to be advocates for the care of the beautiful creation which surrounds us in the lowcountry. Through the PC(USA) office of Compassion, Peace & Justice, we will be participating in advocacy training. There are three sessions on April 7-9 from 11 am – 12:30 p.m. Registration is free.
