Our mission is in all we are and all we do


Meet Our Partners

We partner with organizations that share our values. There are numerous opportunities to get involved. Want to learn more or have questions, reach out to the church office at (517) 784-9175 or the contacts indicated.

First Sunday Food

JFPC partners with Immanuel Lutheran Food Pantry! The first Sunday of each month we bring non-perishable items which restock the shelves at food pantry. Have questions, contact Chris Lake.

Jackson Public Schools Community Closet

JFPC partners with Northeast Elementary School to help stock their "closet" with items a student might need during a school day. These items include personal care products, clothing, shoes, boots, and coats. Have questions, contact Randy Herrick.

Library Aids at Northeast Elementary School

JFPC also partners with Northeast Elementary School to help in their library. Volunteers make a difference by serving three hours per week in the library. If you are interested in helping in the Northeast Elementary library, contact Karen Meyers.

Alcoholics Anonymous 
AA meet daily, 7:30-8:30 pm in the JFPC Westminster Room (first level). Have a problem with alcohol? There is a solution. AA has a simple program that works. It’s based on one alcoholic helping another.

Interfaith Shelter of Michigan

The Interfaith Shelter provides shelter, meals, physical, emotional, and spiritual support for Jackson's homeless population. On the first Tuesday of the month, we make, deliver, and serve a meal. Want to help, contact Sharon Vanderpool.

American Red Cross

Once a month the Red Cross sets up at JFPC for a blood drive. 

Love, INCLove in the Name of Christ

Jackson’s First Presbyterian Church supports Love INC. with a weekly loose change offering, volunteer workers, and diapers for mothers in need. You can volunteer in any of these areas. Have questions,
contact Wayne and Karen Leja.

The Hive
JFPC owns and operates the Hive building next door and has Samaritas (formerly Lutheran Social Services) as a tenant. This is a mutually beneficial arrangement since we can offer below market rental rates for the building to an entity that has a mission to support children and families. We in turn receive a return on our investment and control some parking adjacent to the building. We also have future opportunities to rent to other non-profits that align with our mission or use the space for other mission purposes.

Soul Dig

Lori Tate, DMin, is a spiritual director and an IEA Accredited Professional Member. She integrates the Enneagram into her spiritual direction practice, Soul Dig, which extends beyond the United States.
   Spiritual direction is a practice that can help lead you to a deeper love and acceptance of God and yourself; cultivate inner peace, and a gentleness with yourself and others; strengthen your confidence in God and yourself; and bring greater clarity and perspective, meaning and purpose in your life.
Contact Lori Tate.

A Clean Slate Cleaning Co.
A Clean Slate Cleaning Service cleans the church once a week. In their fifth year of business, they clean both residential homes and businesses. The cleaning business is an outgrowth of SOAR Café and Farms here in Jackson.
     SOAR is a non-profit organization that supports women who have been trafficked, addicted, abused and incarcerated. Some of the women A Clean Slate Cleaning Service employs have been through SOAR’s program and are thriving!

     SOAR has a beautiful home at 300 South Brown Street that offers a two-year program for women that need a place to heal and get back on their feet. If anyone has a question about A Clean Slate or SOAR, please feel free to contact Lisa Nastally 517-612-9320.
