Caregiver Support Group

The Caregiver Support Group is a safe, supportive and confidential place to share your concerns, ask questions and seek guidance both for your loved ones and for yourself. 

 

This group is open to all who are caring for someone with Alzheimer's/Dementia as well as any chronic illness requiring extensive care, i.e. COPD, stroke, cancer, opioid/alcohol related illnesses, accident/trauma, etc. There are many in our congregation/community who are caring for loved ones and could benefit from support. Please consider inviting someone you know who could use that support to attend.

 

If you would like to join our private Facebook group, or participate in our Zoom calls, please email Rosemary 

Quilt Fellowship

 2nd & 3rd Mondays  9 a.m.-4 p.m.  Social Hall

The goal of Quilt Fellowship is to serve the church through the quilts we make. We present quilts to all families moving into Habitat for Humanity homes built in Lake County. We also support FPC missions by giving quilts to Heifer International and other church causes.  All skill levels are welcome any Monday and you may come and go as you wish.  

 

Earth Care Team


As stewards of God’s earth, the Earth Care Team at First Pres implements initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to ecological best practices within our church, works to promote earth stewardship events, and focuses on faithful care of creation both in our worship and in our educational opportunities. New members are welcome!

God's Gardeners

Tuesdays (Spring-Fall)  5:30 p.m. 1200 American Way, Libertyville
Grab your garden gloves and join us each week--from spring planting season through the fall harvest--at the Community CARE Garden, where we work with volunteers from other local churches to support Lake County food pantries. Last year we provided nearly 1,500 pounds of produce directly to our own Mobile Food Pantry. Contact Amy Scovill to join the email list for updates on the garden. Information on upcoming workdays can be found on the garden’s Facebook page (Community CARE Garden, the one with the beautiful sunflower profile picture), so please like us and/or follow us on FacebookWatch our video.

Inquirer's Class

Explore what Presbyterians believe, what is distinctive about our Reformed heritage, and why our church is governed the way it is.  This is a wonderful way to get to know our staff better and gain a deeper understanding for our priorities and passions, our ministries and missions.  If you are curious, this class is for you! 

Our classes are designed for those who are seriously considering joining the church as active members, those who need a refresher course, and those who are searching and discovering God’s leading in their lives. If at the end of the inquiring process you want to become an active member, there are simply two requirements—professing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and baptism. We recognize all Christian baptisms. However, if you haven’t been baptized, a baptism date will be scheduled during a Sunday morning worship service.
