Beacon Food Drive

Bring in non-perishable items to the church each week during the month of April. Stock up your side of the aisle, men vs. women style! Which one will bring in the most food?


Serve Day – April 29, 8:45am

We will worship outside the sanctuary this Sunday by serving our neighborhood. Join us as we work on projects in the neighborhood surrounding the church. Bring some gloves and serve with us! Lunch will be provided at the church at noon.


Day Camp – June 25-29, 2018

This year, Traveling Day Camp is coming to First Presbyterian Fort Scott during the week of June 25-29! We are offering this exciting program in partnership with Heartland Camp. All children who have completed K-5 can enjoy this week long, full day camp held right here at our church. For more information and to sign up, click here.


Youth Mission Trip – July 7-14, 2018

All current 6th-12th graders are invited to join us as we travel to northern Arizona for a week of service. We are working with YouthWorks and will join up with about 50 other young people from around the U.S. working together on projects with local ministries. Several fundraisers are planned during the spring to cut down on the cost of the trip. A $50 deposit is due by April 29. For more information and to sign up, click here.
