An Invitation to be a Blessing to our Community

Here at First Pres we want to address the significant societal challenge of loneliness and isolation, and its relevance to the Church of Jesus Christ. Depression, addiction, violence, and social polarization are recognized by US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy as a public health crisis. Many in Glen Ellyn lack authentic connections in a culture lacking relational authenticity, maturity, kindness, and humility. As part of All IN, First Pres introduces the “Identifiable Communities Initiative” to help foster deep, intentional relationships. Join us on January 28th where you can learn more about how to contribute to this vital ministry addressing the urgent need for authentic connections in our community. Learn more here.
