Hands-On Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

The Old Presbyterian Meeting House currently supports the following local missions through volunteers and financial gifts. Contact the church office for more information on how to get involved.

2022 StepALIVE! Walkathon

Mark your calendars: StepALIVE! 2022 will take place at 2:00 PM on Sunday, October 16. All proceeds from this 5 mile run or 5k walk will be used to support our neighbors in need seeking food, shelter, and emergency financial assistance for rent and other basic needs.

Joan Moser, our ALIVE Rep has formed the  “Virtual” Old Presbyterian Meeting House Team. Please join with other members of our Church to raise money for a great cause! 

If you want to get some fresh air and exercise you can also join the Walk/Run in person. After the walk there will be music and food for participants.

Register for the Virtual team or the in person event and be part of our Old Presbyterian Meeting House team.

For more information, contact Joan or visit the ALIVE! website. All registrants will receive an event T-shirt.
