The pledges you collect for the steps you take support long-term development programs in more than 80 countries, including the Kalamazoo area and the United States. Locally - organized CROP WALKS bring together people of all ages and faiths in a network of local and global caring. 

CROP Walks are faith-based community fund-raising events sponsored by Church World Service, and international relief development and refugee resettlement agency. There are over 2000 CROP Walks in the US. Funds raised help local anti-poverty efforts as well as the work of Church World Service (Visit: www.cwsglobal.org).

This I Believe

...it helps me to think of God as a sculptor forming us out of the clay in His hands, breathing life into us and bestowing on this creature some element of His Deity.

Seeking a Church Home

I chose the church  partially because of my Presbyterian background and my prior awareness of First Presbyterian Church, but more importantly because it represents a compatibility with my beliefs and values and deep commitment to social, financial and human justice.

On becoming a new member

We loved the church’s community involvement, the friendliness of the church family and the weekly teachings. We wanted to become part of that involvement and to have our children grow up in such a wonderful environment.
