First Presbyterian is both a recipient of mission and an initiator of mission. Others in the region participate with First Church in helping maintain its building for mission. We have received this partnership in mission by working alongside members of regional churches like Fourth Presbyterian Church in downtown Chicago and in partnering with students from the University of Chicago.

Because we have received this mission support, we have also been empowered to share mission with our community by opening our the doors of our historic building for the Open House Chicago Architectural Tour, and by hosting a weekly food pantry for neighbors in need and raising funds for that work by participating in the Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk with fall.
