Ministries of the Church
We are committed to being Christ’s engaged disciples in the world –
after the manner of Matthew 25:40
“As you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me.”
Stronghold Castle located in Oregon, IL, was built by the Walter Strong family in 1928. It was sold to the Presbyterian Church in the early 1960’s and is enjoyed by many as a Christian Camp and Conference Center. Stronghold hosts Summer Camps for youth and offers seven buildings that can accommodate guest sizes of 6 up to 56. It is a wonderful location for seminars, business meetings, development programs, picnics and family reunions.
Stronghold grounds include many hiking trails, challenge courses, camping areas, frisbee golf, a pool and much more. Take a trip to Oregon and enjoy the beauty of Stronghold!
Agave Presbytery – Acra, Ghana
For twenty years we have supported Presbyterian churches in the region of Acra, Ghana. Led by David Portufe, a native of Ghana, and a team from the church, we have provided for pastoral staff, buildings, and supplies for teachers and their students.
Fremont Street Community Garden sponsored by TPC
Neighbors of the church are welcome to plant and garden in a set of raised beds adjacent to the parking lot at Brown Ave. and Fremont Street.
The Piece Corps and Luncheon Fellowship
The women of Third Pres. get together the second and fourth Wednesday of each month to work on quilts for those in need. If you can sew, cut fabric or thread a needle, they would be happy to have you join them. Afterwards, they share a delicious meal with the men’s Bible study group.
Presbyterian Women’s Association
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study; and to build an inclusive, caring community that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA).
Habitat for Humanity
We are very fortunate to partner with Habitat for Humanity to help families build affordable homes in our community. This gives us the opportunity to gather with friends and neighbors to help during the building process. We also provide lunches for the volunteers. Volunteers do not need any special skill. There is a job for anyone. Come volunteer and help Habitat build and spread God’s love.
