Every summer, we close down Garfield Ave next to the church and have a block party for people in the community and our neighborhood. We provide the food, games, and the beverages, all you have to bring is yourself and a chair. While we have it every summer, the date changes each year, so check out our church calendar for when our next block party will be!
The annual Formal Sale held at Colby First Presbyterian Church has become a success. Those wishing to donate dresses and persons needing formal wear have kept us busy for a week each spring since 2009. Dresses sell for $20 each in as/is condition. All proceeds are donated to Genesis Thomas County food bank.
Every year, on Christmas Eve, members of our congregation delivers cookies and baked goodies to those who have to work on Christmas Eve. We deliver these goodies to places like the police and fire stations, the hospital, the nursing homes, and the gas stations. We also deliver Christ gift boxes to several people in the commuity who might not otherwise receive a Christmas gift.
We support the efforts of Genesis Thomas County Food Pantry. Each month, during worship on the 1st Sunday, we collect non-perishable food for Genesis. We also allow Genesis to use our facility to store much of their bulk items. We also make a point to financailly give to Genesis every year to support its efforts to serve those in need within our community and the surrounding area.
During the Spring and Summer, through early Fall, we set outside on the sidewalk, a prayer station. We post a theme on the board and invite our community neighbors to write their own prayers using the sidewalk chalk provide. This is a way that we engage our neighborhood and community in prayer. Everyone is invited, especially our younger neighbors.
