Advent Family Celebration

We invite you to join us as we celebrate the start of the Advent season!



A Note of Appreciation from Family Services

Even as our work continues in helping to give the Domestic Violence Shelter a "make-over," Family Services has sent our congregation this note of thanks:

To the members of First Presbyterian Church, Lexington:

On behalf of the staff and board of Family Services of Davidson County and the thousands served each year with crisis services and shelter at the Hattie Lee Burgess House, thank you! Thank you for gathering your generous donations of money and supplies for needed improvements at the shelter. Thank you for organizing your youth and adults to help paint, make repairs and do yardwork. Your donations of time, talent and treasure have a direct and significant impact on the lives of the women and children who seek safe shelter with us.

May your church thrive and grow as you share God’s blessings with all you meet.

With gratitude,

Julia Toone
Family Services of Davidson County, Inc.

Chicken Pie & Baked Spaghetti Sale for Missions – Fall 2017

This sale helps us raise extra funds that can go directly and immediately to the local helping agencies we support. It is our hope for this sale to go beyond the membership of the church, so we encourage everyone to invite their neighbors, friends and coworkers to order.

Large chicken pies (which can serve 6-8) are $13.00; orders of 3 or more are $12 each.

Small chicken pies (which can serve 1-2) are $16 for a pack of four pies (must be sold as whole packs).
